WEBSITE OF THE DAY: Cyber Smart Awards
If you’re reading this, it’s fair to say that you’re probably quite tech-savvy.
You probably get a lot of your news and do the bulk of your shopping online. It’s likely that you’ve got at least one social network in your life and maybe you even have your own blog. Yep, you’ve got it going on, digitally speaking.
But it’s not the same for everybody.
Some people don’t get the benefits of comparison sites when it comes to renewing their car insurance or buying a new telly. Can you imagine that?
Some people don’t get their groceries delivered and have to traipse round their local supermarket on a Saturday morning.
Worse that any of that though, is the people who do go online and get into all sorts of horrible situations, simply because they haven’t had a helping hand when first taking the plunge.
Keeping kids and the inexperienced safe and helping people get the most out of their digital lives is a huge responsibility, and it’s one that’s increasingly being shared by numerous organisations and even individuals.
Technology has moved so fast that society hasn’t been able to keep up, but thankfully, some people are now putting in the hard work to get things back on an even keel.
At cybersmartawards.org it’s time to recognise and reward these people for what they’re doing.
This is the UK’s first awards scheme for individuals and organisations who are doing their bit for internet safety.
