For those of you trying to provide a comprehensive guide to Internet safety for education purposes, NoBullying has a series of helpful documents available.

 

"It is essential for parents and educations to learn those online safety tips to make exploring the cyber world a much easier (and) safer experience for our children," said Macartan Mulligan, NoBullying.com co-founder, in a press statement.

 

The full list: Malware, antivirus and firewall programs, free software, drive-by downloads, privacy, read the privacy policy, check links within emails, online chats, passwords, and encryption.

 

Although computer enthusiasts are more aware of cyberthreats, there is a growing effort to try and inform regular users of malware, phishing, and other cybercriminal efforts. Furthermore, security experts also want to help younger Internet users be more vigilant of security threats, to prevent malware infection - and username/password theft - though it's a difficult battle.
