CA Technologies and NCMEC Partner to Make Kids Safer Online

In recognition of Cyber Security Awareness Month, CA renews decade-plus
partnership with NCMEC, supporting online prevention and education

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® and CA
Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) announced today that, in recognition of Cyber
Security Awareness Month, the software company is providing additional
funding for NCMEC’s efforts to provide Internet safety programs to
children nationwide.

“Technology is an integral part of children’s lives and while the
Internet is an amazing tool for education and entertainment, the risks
that kids face online are very real,” said John Clark, NCMEC president
and CEO. “We have to prepare them to understand that the choices they
make online can have serious consequences. We’re grateful to CA
Technologies for helping us empower more children to make safer and
smarter choices online and offline.”

CA’s funding will support NCMEC’s award-winning NetSmartz
program, a free, interactive, online educational resource for children
ages 5 to 17. The program’s website receives more than 5.5 million
visitors a year and offers resources for kids, parents and educators.

Active in all 50 states, the program seeks to make children more
responsible users of the Internet. It uses data, cutting-edge
technology, engaging music, and animation to address the issues that
affect children the most, such as cyberbullying, sexting and revealing
too much information.

“We are proud to partner with NCMEC to help keep children safer by
putting NetSmartz resources in more classrooms and homes around the
country,” said Erica Christensen, vice president, Corporate Social
Responsibility, CA Technologies. “We believe this program has the power
to stop crimes against children before they happen and even save lives.”

For more than a decade, CA Technologies has partnered with NCMEC to help
find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation and prevent
child victimization. In addition to monetary support, the company has
contributed software solutions, services and training.
