Police To Help On-Line Security Fears

12:10am 21st October 2012

More than half of computer users in Dorset say they're worried about online safety - that's according to a new survey.

Our County Police force has joined a national campaign to help people get protected.

"Get Safe Online Week" goes live tomorrow (Monday 22nd October 2012) and it's hoped it'll help clamp down on innocent people failing victim to internet crime.

Scams, identity thefts, fraud and card cloning are on the rise and people who aren't so internet savvy are the most at risk of being caught out.

Dorset Police is encouraging people to log onto www.getsafeonline.org where there's loads of tips and advice on internet shopping, keeping your children safe online and loads more.

The website also has a dedicated section providing online safety advice for local businesses.
