Internet Safety

Internet safety should be a concern for all.  The World Wide Web is a wonderful resource for information and entertainment.  However, what we sometimes forget is that this resource is also available to those among us who prey on our innocence and naivety.  Sexual predators, cyber stalkers, cyber bullies, identity thieves, con artists, and a host of  other “bad” people also use the internet to ply their trades.  That is why it is so important to learn how to use the internet properly.
