InternetNZ welcomes Online Security Day 2005
29 November 2005
"A welcome initiative which should remind people of their responsibilities when using their computers," is the comment
of Keith Davidson (Executive Director of InternetNZ) in supporting the inaugural New Zealand Online Security Day, being
held tomorrow, Wednesday 30 November 2005.
"This is a great initiative by the Internet Safety Group (NetSafe), and it highlights the NetBasics steps they have been
promoting in recent weeks.
"Too many people simply delay keeping their computers secure - the 'I'll do it tomorrow' culture is all too common.
"People think they can or will update their firewall, patch their operating system and update virus software some other
time. Unfortunately for many people, tomorrow never comes - and unnecessary risks to computer security are all too
common as a result.
"The reality is they should just do it today," Keith Davidson said.
