Making the Internet a Better Place on Safer Internet Day

by Ross Baker

In a little under a generation, the internet has transformed the way we live and work forever. It’s enabled us all to become happier, healthier, more sociable and productive people. But as with everything, there’s a flip side. The online world has also given rise to cyberbullies, trolls, hackers and more. That’s why we need to continue fighting the good fight with industry-leading threat prevention.

But it’s also why we need initiatives like Safer Internet Day (SID), to help the most vulnerable in society stay safe online. Trend Micro is proud to be an official supporter yet again this year, as SID lands today, Tuesday 7th of February with the theme is ‘Be the change: unite for a better internet’.  Continue reading

Take Control at CLOUDSEC London this September

by Bharat Mistry

by Frank Schwittay

At Trend Micro, it’s our core mission to make the world a safer place in which to exchange digital information. In fact, we’ve been protecting consumers, governments, enterprises and SMBs from cyber threats for well over 26 years now. But as a company founded with a keen sense of social responsibility, that’s not all we do. From the top down, we encourage all our employees to engage with their wider communities and wherever possible we reach out to local businesses, charities, educational institutions and the like to see where we can help out.

One project we’re delighted to be repeating for the second year in a row is our partnership with City of Westminster College. Next week, students will be presenting a photography exhibition themed around data protection, so if you’re in the area we’d love you to come down and take a look at the fruits of their labour.
