AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/09 -- JustAskGemalto today announced the launch of a Digital Security Expert Video Series on their YouTube channel. A new video will be introduced every Friday. Captured during October's National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), JustAskGemalto's Digital Security Expert Video Series will run through the month of November and into the holiday shopping season. The series is aimed at increasing digital security awareness, education, and participation among consumers who are living an increasingly digital lifestyle.
In a recent address on National Cyber Security Awareness Month President Obama highlighted, "Our digital networks are critical to our national security, military superiority, and public safety, but that dependence makes us vulnerable to cyber attacks by those who would do us harm." JustAskGemalto.com's Brittany Jedrzejewski agrees, "We are glad we could bring together a well-respected group of digital security experts to address such an important topic with information that will benefit those incorporating the online world into their daily routine."
