Concerning QR-CODES, be aware of the bad use of QR-Codes by the bad boys! As those black and white points into a square can’t get decoded with the eyes and any bad stuff could get hidden inside, it would be BETTER to be aware and to use a QR-Reader with security protection included! BEWARE of the MALWARE! Please find below my recommendations for BEST protection:


Why should ===> anyone <=== participate?


Cyber-security – a shared responsibility

Cyber-security – a shared responsibility


Cyber-Security is a shared responsibility, WE are ALL responsible for a more secure Internet and it is ===> OUR responsibility to build up the future for OUR kids, learners and students! <=== 

WE can do it by learning and teaching the basics of Cyber-Security and ALSO by helping international organizations such as “Safer Internet Day” to become a catalyst for such a difficult task!!!

That is why I am participating on SID2013 with my FREE courses here:
