IBM has announced today, 7 February 2012, that in conjunction with Safer Internet Day, it will release free Internet safety training tools for students and have thousands of volunteers working to help raise awareness and educate students and businesses on Internet safety and digital responsibility.
IBM is unveiling three free volunteer kits to better educate students, parents and teachers on Internet safety:

This presentation and volunteer information helps students learn how to protect personal data and control how they present themselves online.
- Internet Safety Coaching - Aimed at teachers or adults working with children, this is a general primer on Internet safety providing basic information about common Internet activities by young people including instant messaging and social networking. This kit is designed to raise awareness of Internet safety and how to have a meaningful and open dialogue with children on this topic.
