Key Findings from Norton Cybersecurity Insights Report: UK on Safer Internet Day.
61 percent of UK adults agreeing that the internet has made the world a more dangerous place than when they were growing up
Six in ten consumers surveyed believe 11 to 16 year olds are most vulnerable online, in comparison to other age groups
Two thirds of parents (65 percent) believe that some parents don’t worry enough about their children’s online activity
57 percent of parents take care not to open email from senders they don’t recognise as opposed to 69 percent of non-parents
48 percent of parents use different passwords for different sites or devices as opposed to 61 percent of non-parents
Only 63 percent of parents have security software for their desktop/laptop as opposed to 72 percent of non-parents
“Children today are part of a digital generation, they simply do not know any different than to use technology and the internet. Whilst it may be second nature, it’s important that young people understand the risks and the boundaries they should observe. Like learning to ride a bike, or crossing the road, the most effective way to educate children is to start early and empower them to take more responsibility for their own safety. As such, we encourage parents to take an active role in understanding and educating their children about online safety,” added Tony Neate, Chief Executive Officer, Get Safe Online. “From the research it’s clear that parents still have the opportunity to improve in this regard, and we continue to working with Norton to support parents in this education process.”

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens is coming on June 28th release with exclusive DLC on PlayStation. Lego Star Wars Episode 7. Lego Star Wars Episode VII.
We have a look at the announcement trailer and DLC details along with special modes in the game.
Although it had been leaked on retail sites earlier, the confirmation of a new Lego Star Wars game coming this year was still a welcome surprise for gaming and film fans.
The Force Awakens already has content in the toys-to-life space with Disney Infinity so it seemed unlikely that Warner would be able to include the franchise in its Lego Dimensions offering.
This separate game makes more sense though. Not only is there no toy-game cross-over conflict but it also grants TT Games enough space to go to town on the characters, locations and worlds of Star Wars Episode 7.
PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 owners get some exclusive downloadable content for the Droid Character Pack and the Phantom Limb Level Pack. This may well be a timed exclusive like we’ve just seen for Lego Marvel’s Avengers on PlayStation.
It will be interesting to see how the new Lego Star Wars video game relates to the Lego toy lines expected to be fully unveiled in New York. Already the new Lego Mixels, Lego Nexo Knights and Lego Angry Birds — each with a tie-in video-game — have gone down well this year.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStationm3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, 3DS and PC.
