Government launches new website to help people stay safe online

This week the Government has launched “Be Cyber Streetwise,” a new campaign designed to help individuals and small businesses protect themselves from the threat of cyber crime. Web users will now be able to access clear advice for being safe online at its website www.cyberstreetwise.com . With more people online than ever before, and a record 11 million internet-enabled devices received as gifts this Christmas, staying safe online has never been more important. On this new website, users can access interactive resources with advice on how to protect themselves. I welcome this initiative, which will play an important part in protecting individuals, their families and businesses from cyber crime.
