Rohan Amin, JPMorgan Chase chief information security officer, said, “We’re honored to receive this award and proud to partner with the Center to help people learn how to be safe online. Cybersecurity is a top priority for us at the bank, and we continue to reinforce the idea that cybersecurity is everyone’s job. In addition to our employees, we educate our customers and clients on how to protect their assets and businesses from cyber threats. We’re thrilled to be able to share our knowledge with children and their parents in our broader community.”

Safe and Secure Online offers online safety education materials for children, parents, educators, and senior citizens. The children’s materials feature Garfield and friends in cartoons and comic books tackling different cyber safety issues, including privacy, the dangers of posting online, online etiquette, cyberbullying, and more.

In 2016, Satish Jayaprakash, CISSP and JPMorgan Chase vice president of cyber security and a Safe and Secure Online volunteer, recognized that Safe and Secure Online was a natural extension of the company’s Technology for Social Good program, which provides opportunities for JPMorgan Chase employees to use their technology expertise to give back to their communities. Recognizing the company’s global cybersecurity staff as an untapped resource to teach online safety awareness, he mobilized the cybersecurity team to deliver Safe and Secure Online to students and parents in their communities in less than a year. To date, JPMorgan Chase staff have taught 4,000 parents and children in the US, EMEA and APAC how to protect themselves online.
