Get Help for Cybercrime

The NC 211 support network offers help to victims of cybercrime.

North Carolina residents can dial 211 to find resources to deal with identity theft, financial fraud, cyberstalking, cyberbullying and other cybercrimes.

This free, confidential service is available 24/7 in multiple languages.

Callers can also get help reporting cybercrime and filing crime reports with law enforcement. They can also connect to NC 211's database of more than 16,000 health and human services, such as food, housing, utility and health care assistance.

Enter a Student Art Contest

Students of all ages are invited to participate in a national K-12 poster contest on cybersecurity.

Their original artwork will be used to help raise awareness of internet and computer safety among young people.

The Center for Internet Security’s Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center wants young people to create messages about using the internet safely and securely.

The artwork should resonate strongly with students' peers and will be used in nationwide awareness campaigns.
