<p>CUPERTINO, Calif., <span class="xn-chron">March 16</span> /CNW/ -- Are you handy with a video camera and have a great Internet safety story to share? Trend Micro wants to hear it. The leading content security vendor today launched the "What's Your Story?" campaign, and is calling everyone over the age of 13 to submit their videos on Internet safety.</p>
<p/>
<p>The campaign, which is sponsored and supported by the Trend Micro Internet Safety for Kids & Families initiative and its partners, is designed to help parents, teachers and youth become more aware of Internet safety issues so young people can be smart and safe when it comes to using the Internet. Through this program, Trend Micro is enabling kids, parents and educators to be smart about Internet safety through employee volunteerism, partnerships with organizations who share the same mission, and supporting causes that promote the Internet safety of kids around the world.</p>
<p/>
<p>"When Trend Micro first launched Internet Safety for Kids & Families in 2008, we made a commitment to providing quality, practical information to those who have a stake in keeping young people safe on the Internet," said <span class="xn-person">Lynette Owens</span>, director of corporate outreach for Trend Micro. "We hope the "What's Your Story?" campaign will be a fun, meaningful, and relevant way for people to share their creative sides, and promote Internet safety at the same time."</p>
