Site Safety Center

 

Gust MEES: In a world where nearly everything is getting shared it is very important to make sure that the shared websites (URL's) are safe! But how to know this?

 

Teachers as also learners share websites, so basics of IT-Security (not ONLY Internetsafety) are a MUST in Education!
