New Zealanders have almost universal access to the internet and the immense range of benefits that this brings. As a nation of keen internet users, we increasingly expect to be able to connect to the internet no matter where we are or what we are doing.

Each day we make use of digital technology to broadcast to our networks, respond to messages, shop or socialise with others. We have come to rely on the versatility of the internet in a very brief period of time.

Going online more often also increases our exposure to digital challenges. All internet users need the knowledge and skills to keep themselves and others safe and secure online. This applies regardless of age, location or occupation and whether going online at home, at work or for play.
