NATIONAL CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED TO HELP UK GET SAFE ONLINE
â€˜Get Safe Onlineâ€™ Report Highlights Public Confusion Over Online Safety
Millions of UK Internet users are putting themselves at risk of attack from Internet criminals because they donâ€™t understand threats to their computer or the ways to protect against them. These are the findings of a new campaign called â€˜Get Safe Onlineâ€™ launched today in London to tackle this serious problem.
As threats from organised Internet criminals grow, new research from Get Safe Online http://www.getsafeonline.org has found that over three quarters of the UKâ€™s population (83%) donâ€™t know enough about protecting themselves online. In fact 42% of the population just rely on friends and family for online safety advice rather than finding expert information for themselves.
