Safer Internet Day 2016 promotes better web security for families – but just maybe corporations should listen up as well.
Today is Safer Internet Day 2016, which promotes the safe and responsible use of digital technology for children. Maybe grown-ups in business suits should be paying attention as well, though. With participation in more than a hundred countries, support from the European Commission and a mission to ‘create a better internet’ by making the web more secure, Safer Internet Day is obviously a good thing. The only bad thing is that it’s only aimed at families, and in particular, children. Reading through the various reports and releases that have been published this morning, I can’t help but see huge parallels between the risks, behaviours and understanding of kids when it comes to internet safety and grown-ups working in the average enterprise.
