Blackwood Industries joins the entire community in celebrating Safer Internet Day (SID) 2019

We join the entire online community in celebrating this important occasion: Safer Internet Day (SID) – an annual event that is aimed to create awareness on the importance of keeping the digital world a safer place for all.


This year’s campaign’s slogan, “Together for a better internet”, is a call to action for all stakeholders to unite and play their part in creating a better internet for everyone, most especially for younger users.


In relation to this important celebration, Blackwood, as a leader in the digital marketing industry. is sharing in this post some practical tips about how you can contribute in your own small ways in realizing this landmark campaign.


Consider the practices:


  • Make your website secure (https// vs http//) – Doing this will help prevent your website from getting compromised, protecting not just your content but the integrity of your users’ information as well.
  • Think before you post and share – This is an important way to combat fake news; always check the source and make sure it is legitimate
  • Think before you share pertinent information online – The e-commerce website you are making some purchase on might not be an authentic one; check the URL always
  • Help combat cyberbullying by being mindful on your online interaction, social engagement.
  • If you yourself are a victim of cyberbullying, don’t handle the situation alone; reach out to professionals/communities that have been proven to provide support
  • Exercise restraint – If not necessary, never share personal data online as information you share may stay there forever
  • The online community isn’t just the desktop and laptop computers; we are on mobile/smartphones as well – Be safe, implement good practices across all internet devices.
