INTERNET EDUCATION FOUNDATION & DELL TO LAUNCH CONSUMER SPYWARE INITATIVE

What: Launch of the Consumer Spyware Initiative (CSI)

Spyware is rapidly becoming one of the most harmful Internet hazards consumers face, potentially surpassing viruses as Internet users' number one online threat. And unlike viruses, consumers have limited knowledge about how to identify and combat spyware.

To better arm consumers in the battle against spyware, the Internet Education Foundation (IEF) and Dell, Inc. have developed the Consumer Spyware Initiative (CSI).
