Symantec is backing a scheme run by the UK government and police to get small and medium sized businesses to take online security and safety more seriously.

The "Get Safe Online" campaign aims to provide one source of security information and advice for small businesses. The website covers online fraud, virus protection, and even advice on using online dating sites and social networking services safely.

Symantec will also be providing expert advisors during Get Safe Online Week, which runs from 12 to 16 November.

The campaign has been running for three years and is a joint venture between the Serious Organised Crime Agency, government, and private sector partners.

Other sponsors include Cable & Wireless, eBay, HSBC, and Microsoft.
