The UK government has teamed up with IT firms, banks and retailers to help fund a website to boost awareness of IT security issues for consumers and small businesses.
The sponsors have provided £150,000 which has been matched by the same funds from the Cabinet Office.
Due for launch in October, Get Safe Online will provide advice on how to stop viruses, block hackers, tackle spyware and protect personal data. It will also offer free downloads of antivirus and firewall software via links to other sites.
The government said that it hoped to attract further sponsors in a bid to fund a £2m advertising campaign to further raise awareness.
