International Safer Internet Day 2014


Tuesday 11th February 2014 will mark the annual International Safer Internet Day. Created by the European Commission in 1999, International Safer Internet Day has sought to help protect people of all ages from harmful and illegal content online.


Safer Internet Day allows national and international organisations an opportunity to raise the subject of internet safety within their own spheres of influence and gives a platform to offer demonstrations and advice around staying asfer whilst using the internet.
