On the 7th of February 2023, Fundația Umanitară ASSIST took part in an important awareness-raising activity for the local community. Since it was Safer Internet Day, we joined forces with major local partners and offered people support in increasing online safety. For 2 hours, we were present at Iulius Mall Suceava, where we engaged in helpful discussions with adults and children about Internet safety. In addition to the valuable information shared, we offered support through educational resources adapted to all age groups.
Fundația Umanitară ASSIST believes that education to increase Internet safety is essential for all who have access to the online world. Risks and fraud attempts have become increasingly frequent and challenging to identify. Individuals have become the primary victims of cyber-attacks as the Internet is used daily for many purposes, such as work, information sharing, communication, etc.
What are the most common online risks, and how can you avoid them?
The best way to protect yourself from risks on the Internet is prevention. This is why the ASSIST Humanitarian Foundation decided to join the initiatives launched as part of the "Education for Safety in the Digital Age" campaign. The event organized at Iulius Mall Suceava on Internet Safety Day was the first of many events planned for the campaign. This project will continue to provide necessary advice and resources for children and adults to help them stay safe online.
