What does this programme involve?

The internet has done a staggering amount for humanity, helping us to build communities, exchange ideas, and accomplish more than at any other point in our history. However, it is indiscriminate in its generosity, and has offered many new opportunities for hoaxers and hackers.

Understanding and using the internet is the only way to stay relevant and connected to today's world, but it is important to know how to do this safely and confidently. Awareness of common pitfalls is crucial, and will eventually help lead to a decrease in scams and predators online.
