Thatcher+Co. wins two 2017 Silver Anvil Awards

for its work with the National Cyber Security Alliance

The Challenge

Make the Internet Safe For All

With identity theft being the fastest growing crime in America, The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) challenged Thatcher+Co. to inspire a national dialogue encouraging the public to use multi-factor authentication and to secure a 10-15% increase in the already strong media coverage during National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM).

A large-scale, public-private initiative, the campaign brought together more than 40 industry, non-profit and government partners including official sponsors Google, Twitter, PayPal, MasterCard, Intel, Wells Fargo, Visa, Mozilla, CompTIA and Javelin Strategy & Research.

Thatcher+Co. collaborated directly with the White House to create the “Lock Down Your Login” campaign. To see the official press release, click here.
