No funds? No problem, spread the word instead!

Politely encourage those using the term "hacker" in a negative connotation to use the term "cyber criminal" instead. Since "cyber" and "criminal" are descriptive of unethical intent and are ubiquitous terms with which many are already familiar, "cyber criminal" tends to resonate well with the majority of people.  The terms "cyber attacker" and "threat actor" also work to a lesser extent. Kindly use the hashtag #HackingIsNotACrime when encountering these situations on social media to raise awareness.

Below are addition ways to raise awareness:

1. Sign and share our petition

2. Tell the media

3. Encourage organizations to partner and campaign with us

4. Contact your representatives to update legislation

5. Support our affiliates, partners, organizations, and sponsors
