Staying Safe Online

When you cross the road you make sure it’s safe to do so… When you take part in a potentially dangerous sport like rock climbing or white-water rafting, you wear protective clothing… If you go surfing you wear a wetsuit… Even when you just go out in the rain, you carry an umbrella to keep yourself dry…

The above are all examples of staying safe and well and protecting oneself against potentially harmful and/or uncomfortable situations.

It’s absolutely no different when you ‘surf the web’…
