Internet Safety is a practical appreciation of cyber threats encompassing a broad spectrum of vulnerabilities arising from the use of the Internet, promoting awareness and understanding of the potential undesirable outcomes of online activity.
From the material which one posts, unwittingly providing threads of information which may be exploited individually or accumulatively, though phishing, file hijacking, and how others use and misuse information posted on Social Media and other internet sites, this input explores straightforward management and mitigation of on-line presence and outlines effective options for on-line safety.
