We live in a digital world, and it’s important for all of us to champion online rights and responsibilities as digital citizens. Safer Internet Day (SID) encourages us to take stock of our habits and practices online. It’s also a time for exploring ways to “Connect with Respect,” enabling safer, more trusted experiences for everyone.
In conjunction with SID, Microsoft released results of the second annual Microsoft Computing Safety Index, a survey of online safety behaviors of computer and mobile-device users around the world. Watch Jacqueline Beauchere, Microsoft Trustworthy Computing Director, discuss the results and impact of this survey with online safety experts David Miles from the Family Online Safety Institute, Marsali Hancock from iKeepSafe, and Larry Magid from ConnectSafely.
