Government web site about Internet safety

Filed in by Kirk Averett | October 12, 2005 11:21 am

I read a post over on Jim Robertus’ blog about the U.S. Government’s web site for Internet safety: http://onguardonline.gov[1].  Jim didn’t have a chance to go over it in detail, but I spent some time digging through it.  I am really impressed.  I’m thinking about integrating pieces of this into our company training.

It covers viruses & worms, spyware, identity theft, spam and phishing scams.  It even talks about the risks and benefits of Voice Over Internet Protocol phones.

In particular, I really liked the video introduction to viruses, worms, spyware and basic PC protection steps available on their main page.  For computer users who just don’t understand these threats, it’s a great place to start.
