New Useful FTC Site for Wireless and Computer Security, Internet Fraud, Other Topics and Related Awareness Activities

Yesterday the FTC announced the launch of a new website, OnGuard Online.  This site has some very good information not only for consumers, but also for organizations to use in their information security and privacy education programs; especially small and medium sized businesses who often don’t have a budget for an adequate education effort for their personnel.  What is also nice is that they provide all this in both English and Spanish versions.

Some of the useful items on this site:

  • Free Videos and Tutorials
    • Teaching Kids To Be Safe Online (video)
    • Protect Your Privacy, Your Family, and Your PC (video)
    • Reducing Spam (video)
    • Defend Yourself Against Viruses and Worms (video)
