Truck tour designed to help raise Internet safety awareness in Canada's
least safe "cyber-city"
TORONTO, Jan. 24 /CNW/ -
WHAT: As part of the Norton Connected & Protected Mobile Tour, an
18-wheel semi-truck packed with interactive displays, games,
surveys, product demos and tutorials will be visiting the
Centre for Digital Media today.
Recently, a national survey identified Vancouver as Canada's
least safe "cyber-city". In an effort designed to help raise
Vancouverites' awareness of the need to protect themselves when
online, Symantec is bringing its mobile online-safety tour to
the Greater Vancouver Area.
This is a great news story that looks at where kids are going
online, what are the potential risks children can encounter on
the Internet and what kinds of information kids are sharing on
social networking sites.
WHEN: Thursday, January 24th - Media Day
10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Centre for Digital Media
WHERE: Centre for Digital Media
577 Great Northern Way

Transaction Station (shopping/banking safely online), Family Station (backing
