An initiative to “encourage confident, safe use of the internet”.

The government’s Get Safe Online week (22-26 October) – an initiative to make people aware of the threat of online crime and how to use the internet safely – is now underway as part of an initiative with Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA), Ofcom and private sector sponsors.

A Get Safe Online bus will visit cities across the country, including Cardiff, London and Belfast to “encourage confident, safe use of the internet”.

According to Francis Maude, Minister for Cyber Security at the Cabinet Office: “By following some very simple steps and precautions available through, we can continue to take advantage of all the benefits the Internet has to offer, safely and securely.”
