The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Cybercrime Support Network (CSN) have teamed up to educate military personnel on how to recognize, report and recover from online scams such as identity theft.
CSN, a nonprofit organization that assists cybercrime victims, will help VA implement an educational awareness campaign for service members and their families in the fall, the department said Tuesday.
The partnership will offer access to an electronic library of resources that can support online fraud victims and a website for identifying and reporting fraudsters.
VA added that the campaign will involve making public service announcements available through an online portal and Comcast's broadcasting platform.
The Federal Telecommunications Commission (FTC) founded that active-duty and retired military personnel have lost more than $820 million to cybercrime over the past four years.
