Microsoft and government and non-government partners are taking Internet security on the road with two different tours that will travel to several US cities this year.
The first tour is the 'Get Net Safe' tour, which began in May and still has a few cities left on its 12-city tour. The Get Net Safe Tour is designed to raise awareness about computing security and Internet safety so that people can help better protect their computers, their information, and their families.
Here's a list of the stops left on the tour:
Charlotte – Oct. 24-26Los Angeles – Nov. 14-16Seattle – Nov. 28-30 Orlando – December 5-7
For more information, see StaySafe.org.
The second tour is the 'Safety is no game. Is your family set?' Xbox Citizenship campaign, which launched on October 12th in New York City. This campaign is designed for parents who want to learn more about the Family Settings Feature available in the Xbox 360 console and about other resources to help protect children, like the ESRB's video game ratings and content descriptors.
