Unfortunately, the Internet does have a dark side. From cyber bullying to human trafficking. From identify theft to fraud, there are frightening things that determined criminals can do. The first Tuesday of February has been set as National Safer Internet Day. This year it is February 5th, 2019. The day is dedicated to education, awareness and tools for making the Internet a safer place for everyone.
Here is a link to a livestream on February 5th, with times and speakers. We hope you can take a look and do what you can to make the Internet safer for everyone.
Safer Internet Day is recognized by 100 countries around the world and continues to grow. Private companies, such as Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Twitter and others also support the organization. You can read more by visiting the US home of Safer Internet Day. Even more can be found at the US Host of Safer Internet Day.
