Trend Micro and SM Cyberzone
Promote Internet Safety among Teens
December 2013 – In line with its ongoing advocacy to build a safe online environment for kids and teens, Trend Micro Incorporated, the global leader in online security solutions, partnered with SM Cyberzone to spread awareness on how to safeguard oneself through online safety practices. A series of road shows were held at SM Cyberzones across Metro Manila: SM Marikina, SM Southmall, and SM Sta. Mesa.
The interactive booths reached some thousand young Filipinos who tried their hand at a social media persona quiz, protected their Facebook profiles with the Trend Micro Titanium Privacy Scanner and spoke to Trend Micro volunteers about the importance of maintaining a good online reputation to promote the What’s Your Story contest.
“Knowing the dangers of the Internet gives teens a better appreciation of the need to embrace safer online practices,” shares Myla Pilao, Trend Micro Inc. Director of TrendLabs Marketing Communications. “More and more young people are surfing, communicating, and sharing information on the Internet without knowing the importance of protecting their online reputation. Teens probably don’t realize that what they consider to be regular behavior with friends is actually bad Internet etiquette, that posting what they think is a ‘funny’ photo of themselves might later cause them problems, or that posts about upcoming plans for a family trip out of the country may put their family or home in danger.”
