    reliable and sustainable
  • NDI design based on open standards and driven by
    a functional approach
  • National Strategy supporting regional strategies
    and local choice
  • joined up thinking
  • procurement benefits
  • approved suppliers

A Safer Internet
  • The Internet is an excellent learning tool but it
    comes with security and safety risks.
  • The World Wide Web has content that can be used
    to teach but has content that can endanger a
    child.
  • Internet communications can be a wonderful way to
    contact one another, but can just as easily be
    abused.

    source of an Internet connection and may not need
    local technical knowledge.
  • Service restrictions can be activated by blocking
    ports, file extensions and program names amongst
    others
