Repetition is the mother of learning

Some things on the internet evolve and change fast – but many don’t. Most safety challenges are the same as they were five or ten years ago. For example, password security is just as important now as they were then. Safety is about a lot of things, and they’re not all related to the internet: bullying, using bad language and not wanting to admit your wrongdoings are not new phenomena, they existed well before the internet.

We’ve already covered many topics on this blog and thought that a recap could be in place. In this post we’ve gathered some posts from 2014 and 2015 for you to enjoy.
