  • Blog Post: Safer Internet Day with CEOP - Free online safety resources and training programmes

    Yesterday saw Safer Internet Day 2012 (SID) with CEOP . This has taken months of planning from the CEOP team who have worked continuously to ensure that, whilst your children are using the internet to complete homework, play games to relax or chat to friends through social networks, parents and teachers...
  • Blog Post: Something for your parent newsletter? Avoiding scams

    While he was working from home, a friend of mine recently got a phone call, from "Microsoft support", claiming to want to help him fix his PC. Fortunately, he's the suspicious type. And he's right to be. It's a scam - and I've now heard that other people are getting the same calls. Obviously, we have...
  • Blog Post: The Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit

    I've been away at the corporate mothership this week, over in Seattle (on the left, up near Canada) - the weather has been wetter and colder than at home this week, but when you spend four days in a windowless conference room, the weather's not critical! During these visits, I always learn a big pile...
  • Blog Post: Safer Internet Day – 9th Feb 2010 – Resources to help prepare

    European Safer Internet Day is coming up very soon – it’s two weeks today – and a wide range of organisations are encouraging all schools to run an activity to link in to the event. Whether that’s an assembly, a message in the school newsletter or a parents talk, there are a pile of resources waiting...
  • Blog Post: The Fat Lady sings

    “Ed the Fed” has written to me again. For those who are new to the blog, Ed’s a legend around here as the Microsoft UK Chief Cyber-Security Advisor. We call him “Ed the Fed”, because of his career history at the FBI and other places – which obviously makes him an ideal person to ask about Information...
  • Blog Post: But apart from that, what have Microsoft done for us?

    This might only make sense, if you read yesterday's post , because I'm going to continue the theme. All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have th e Romans ever done for us? Here's another...
  • Blog Post: What have Microsoft ever done for us?

    All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have th e Romans ever done for us? If you’re looking for nostalgia, take a look at the Life of Brian script – which doesn’t start with the question...
  • Blog Post: Do you get asked "How do I do that?" by friends, neighbours and parents?

    If your teachers and students (and friends and family) are always asking you how to do something on the computer, even though you know you showed them at least three times already, you won't be alone - statistics from a recent ICM survey carried out on our behalf show that almost half of all adults in...
  • Blog Post: Partners in Learning programme relaunched

    For the last 5 years we have been running a programme, called Partners in Learning, to extend and expand the development of learning, and especially the ways that ICT can support learning in schools. Globally this programme has invested £125 million into projects run in partnership with governments,...
  • Blog Post: More Free things - the 6th-7th-8th-9th Days of Christmas

    I'm sorry - for the last three days I have been the victim of a virus doing the rounds here in North Oxfordshire. So instead of sitting behind a keyboard, and giving your more Christmas gifts, I have been behind a duvet, trying to recover (and not infect the family). I don't know what the usual winter...
  • Blog Post: Get Safe Online week

    Get Safe Online week (12 th – 16 th November) is upon us again. And in the last 12 months, the subject of getting safe, and staying safe, online has become even more personal to me. More personal like having to spend a whole day restoring a relative's PC, when it was subject to a self-inflicted...
