National Internet safety tour provides guidance, tools and resources to help keep communities safe from Internet predators.
Microsoft Corp.’s Get Net Safe tour, a 12-city initiative to help keep Internet users of all ages safe online, will visit Seattle for three days, running from Nov. 28 to Nov. 30. Microsoft and its partners will sponsor 10 educational events in Washington — in Seattle, Redmond, Everett and Tacoma — with specialized content to empower children, teens, parents, business owners and people over 50 to better protect themselves, their families and their PCs while on the Internet. All sessions are free to attendees. For those who cannot attend a particular event, tips and techniques are provided at http://www.staysafe.org.
