Safer Internet Day is regularly organized by Insafe, the European Safer Internet awareness-raising network co-funded by the European Commission and coordinated by European Schoolnet. Safer Internet Day 2010 will also mark the launch of the web version of eSafety toolkit developed by Insafe in collaboration with Liberty Global Inc. and supported by the European Commission.

This is such a fundamental aspect of Internet security, but it is one that is also usually overlooked. Sites like Facebook make it so easy to put your information out there, which is often a really bad idea. To be honest, I think everyday should be Think before you post day. It would probably cut out a lot of the other noise too ;)


I was not aware about SID. Internet is now under the reach of everyone. Nothing is safe.
