In order to effectively fight cybercrime and make a meaningful impact to this problem, McAfee recognizes that a strong global effort often times necessitates a grassroots effort from individuals around the globe who need funding for their great work—that can often times be replicated. The McAfee Cybercrime Fighter Grants Program is being established to support innovative thinking and concrete, measurable accomplishments in key areas of McAfee's Multi-Point Strategy to Fight Cybercrime.
Programs that qualify for grants include those that demonstrate successes in fighting cybercrime or educating on cybercrime. Organizations or individuals in emerging markets or other regions where cybercrime predominates will be given special consideration. Nominations will be judged by the McAfee Cybercrime Steering Committee and McAfee Cybercrime Initiative Advisory Council. McAfee is proud to have the opportunity to establish this program and fund efforts that can make a difference in the fight on cybercrime.
