Staffing 360 Solutions' Division to Support (ISC)2 Foundation's Safe and Secure Online Program

Cyber 360 Solutions to Provide Volunteers and Corporate Resources to Assist the Program in Schools Throughout Eastern Massachusetts

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2013) - Staffing 360 Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: STAF), a public company engaged in the provision of international staffing services in IT, financial, accounting, healthcare, and cybersecurity industries, announced today that its Cyber 360 Solutions division is partnering with the (ISC)2 Eastern Massachusetts Chapter to help promote and support the (ISC) Foundation's Safe and Secure Online program. The (ISC)2 Foundation is the non-profit charitable trust of (ISC)2® ("ISC-squared"), the world's largest information security professional body and administrators of the CISSP®.

Cyber 360 Solutions will provide volunteers and corporate resources to the (ISC)2 Eastern Massachusetts Chapter to propel expansion of the Safe and Secure Online program into schools throughout the northeast U.S. region. The (ISC)2 Foundation's Safe and Secure Online program began in 2006 in conjunction with Childnet International to bring (ISC)2's information security expert members into classrooms to help children ages 7-14 learn how to protect themselves online and become responsible digital citizens. To date, volunteers have reached over 135,000 students and 2,000 parents in Canada, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, and United States through the program.

"We are pleased to formalize this relationship, as it will provide critical cybersecurity education and awareness to children in our local community," stated Mark Aiello, President of the Cyber 360 Solutions division. "As part of Cyber 360 Solutions' commitment to corporate social responsibility, we will provide full-time pay for the time employees spend volunteering for the program because we believe in creating a safe and secure cyber environment for society at large."

The Safe and Secure Online program's presentation materials are available in French, German, and English to (ISC)2-certified members who have successfully completed a criminal background check and training that covers program materials and advice on communicating with children. Topics in the presentation include how to avoid identity theft; how to interact safely online; how to recognize dangers with common practices such as geo-tagging, managing passwords, safely downloading music, and avoiding malicious traps; and where to go for help. The presentation also includes powerful, interactive videos that cover topics like cyberbullying.

"(ISC)2 members initially created the Safe and Secure Online program because we wanted a way to educate the most vulnerable members of society -- children," stated Paul Kozlov, Educational Liaison Director, (ISC)2 Eastern Massachusetts Chapter. "Cyber 360 Solutions has a fantastic network in Massachusetts and we sincerely appreciate their generous contribution of volunteers and resources. As with all of our partners, we look forward to working with Cyber 360 Solutions to help expand our outreach in and around the Boston area, in addition to our global initiatives around the world."
