Staying Safe Online

OnlineThis blog is dedicated to improving your safety, and that of your computer, while using the Internet. Another excellent resource on that topic is  The National Cyber Security Alliance’s StaySafeOnline.org website. Drop by there soon and take a look at their content, it’s really quite good.

One of the categories of information covered is Keep a Clean Machine, which includes advice on malware and botnets; spam and phishing; hacked accounts and securing your home network. Protect Your Personal Information covers identity theft, use of passwords, social networks and online shopping. There’s a For Parents section that includes Raising Digital Citizens, Cyberbullying & Harassment, Parental Controls and Gaming Tips. The Mobile & On-The-Go section covers mobile devices and mobile parental controls. Just go to www.StaySafeOnline.org, click on “I want to stay safe online” and start reading the information provided.
