OnGuard Online and GetNetWise

Bruce Morton

In general, Entrust Insights is aimed at the SSL-knowledgeable reader. But here are a couple of websites that are quite user- friendly and provide good advice to those less tech savvy.

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has a site called OnGuard Online. I like the tag line, “Stop. Think. Click.” The site provides advice on using Wi-Fi hotspots, tips for parents with children who use the Internet, and Internet scams. The site also makes effective use of videos and games.

Another useful site is GetNetWise by the Internet Education Foundation. GetNetWise uses blog posts and videos to cover topics such as Keeping Children Safe Online, Stopping Unwanted E-mail and Spam, Protecting Your Computer, and Keeping Your Personal Info Private.

The best feature about both sites? They present information at a level that you don’t need to be a propeller-head to understand.

Happy browsing.
