Cybercrime Support Network (CSN)

Cybercrime Support Network (CSN) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization on a mission to serve individuals and small businesses impacted by cybercrime.

As a public-private collaboration, CSN supports individuals and small businesses through, a resource database for those affected by cybercrime and online fraud, and, a website to help identify scams and stop fraudsters. 

Resources for addressing cybercrime and online fraud are scattered among various organizations, resulting in inconsistent information about how to report a crime or who to turn to for resolution. CSN fosters collaboration, provides training, compiles resources and works within the law enforcement and consumer protection ecosystems to ensure those affected by cybercrime are supported in a coordinated manner.

CSN programs include:

  • Peer Support Program – To support individuals impacted by romance scams, CSN provides peer support groups facilitated by CSN and a licensed counselor in a safe, virtual environment. The goal of the program is to prevent revictimization while supporting emotional and mental wellness.
  • #SecureTogether – Business leaders and individuals have the opportunity to serve as volunteer facilitators working directly with friends, family, and coworkers to guide them through four key actions that can be implemented immediately to improve their online security.
  • Military & Veteran Program – The program is part of an alliance with military and veteran service organizations, government entities, foundations and private corporations to educate and mobilize the military community to do three things: recognize, report and recover from cybercrime.
