August 1 is World Wide Web Day, a time dedicated to celebrating the revolutionary technology created by Tim Berners-Lee in 1989 while working at the CERN in Geneva.
At just 33 years old, the World Wide Web has changed the world, becoming the primary method used by individuals to shop, get entertainment, learn and communicate with others. Today, web usage is available on practically every smart device and can easily be accessed through our cellphones, laptops and gaming devices.
This quickly evolving communication mechanism is used by over 5 billion people every day, and as the internet becomes more intertwined with our daily lives and activities, several privacy and security issues linked to our browsing behavior and web usage need to be addressed.
As avid cybersecurity promoters and proud defenders against new and existing digital threats, we’re kicking off the celebratory event with easy tips on how to stay safe while enjoying all the perks of exploring the web.
