NEW YORK, /PRNewswire/ -- The National Cyber Security Alliance and Symantec released this week a major study examining the online safety perceptions and behaviors of U.S. adults. The study, released as part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, reveals that most Americans feel safe when going online from their personal computers, but that confidence does not translate to mobile devices. Michael Kaiser, Executive Director, The National Cyber Security Alliance commented: "It's no longer just your personal computer or laptop that's connected to the Internet. It's your phone, your gaming console, and even your TV. However, the ever-increasing ways that Americans are connecting to the Internet pose new security risks.

“Whenever, and however we go online, it's important to stop and think about the places we intend to visit, the information we plan to share, and the communities in which we'll participate before we connect to the Internet. Three easy words – Stop. Think. Connect."
