3 Big data security analytics techniques

Mickey Mouse, Goofy and all the Disney gang are to be employed to teach Europe's youngsters about steering clear of strangers on the Net. In a reworking of the popular fairy tale, the three little pigs will warn kids of the dangers of the "big bad wolves" that stalk the Net. According to Reuters, Disney Online will launch the education programme today in Paris. Disney's French language Web site will be the first to carry the warnings. Britain and Germany will get their safe surfing messages next week. Kids will be warned not give out any personal details -- regardless of who they think they're talking to. The move is designed to clean up the Web and help stamp out paedophile activity. Last week AOL UK announced it had created a "walled garden" of safe content where children aged 2-12 are free to roam without fear of coming across disturbing or adult material. And in July, the Health Education Authority launched a Web site designed to help children assess the usefulness of information they find on the Net. ®
