It’s get Safe Online Week: 22-26 October 2012. Will you click and tell?

Guest Post by: Anna Sampson

Symantec Website Security Solutions is proud to announce its sponsorship of Get Safe Online week. Throughout this week, we are supporting the online safety initiative in its goal to spread the word about being secure whilst online. Symantec industry experts will join a tour bus around the UK, and we are also providing Symantec and Norton information to bus visitors. This year Get Safe Online wants everyone to ‘Click &Tell’ - that is to check out the advice on their website, pick up a few online safety tips and pass them on to friends, family, colleagues, neighbours or even strangers who may benefit from the advice. Each day, the Get Safe Online tour bus will be visiting schools, universities and city centres to hand out free advice on how to keep secure online.

The Get Safe Online bus will be in the following cities during the week:

Cardiff – Sunday 22 October

London – Tuesday 23 October

Leeds – Wednesday 24 October

Edinburgh – Thursday 25 October

Belfast – Friday 26 October (no Symantec experts)


Tony Neate, CEO of Get Safe Online, said; “Put simply, the internet is one of the greatest inventions the world has ever seen. It has so much to offer us all. Get Safe Online Week is definitely not about taking the fun out of being connected online, but about making sure everyone knows how to stay safe and secure when using it. We want to get as many people as possible sharing their experiences to make more people aware of how to protect themselves, their friends and family online.”

Anna Sampson, Senior Manager, Direct Marketing for Symantec Website Security Solutions said; “Symantec has been working with Get Safe Online for many years, but this year we are delighted to be able to take our messages direct to the public. We look forward to meeting people and answering their questions about how Symantec and Norton can help to keep them safe online.” For more information visit www.getsafeonline.org
