Fay MacDonald, the Communications Co-ordinator at The Internet Watch Foundation commented: “The IWF are delighted to endorse The Safe Internet Show as an event we feel will not only bring designers, suppliers and safety organisations together to enable the general public to learn about internet technology, but also provides a platform to deliver very important educational and awareness messages about some of the risks of the internet and how to deal with them.
The IWF wants to reassure people that the public are entitled to an abuse free online environment and we hope we can continue to foster trust and vigilance through the work we do. The Safe Internet Show provides an opportunity for the public to learn more about feeling secure online.”
The show is sponsored by www.telegraph.co.uk, The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) and Mobile Data Association.
