Cyber Security and Online Safety Awareness Evening Monday 29th October

We talk about safety all the time, it is discussed a lot. I feel that online safety should be taught as being equally important. There are many ways to protect ourselves online but few know the details about them. Cyber security is our shared responsibility.

We talk about ’Don’t click on scam emails’ but what is a scam email, how does it work and how can you tell? We will talk about passwords, social engineering, social media, emails, Wi-Fi and much more, helping as many people as possible to protect themselves online. I think that everyone should have the opportunity to learn about online safety which is why, on Monday 29th October at 7.15pm, I will be running a free evening at Hope Village Hall to discuss and learn about this key part of our modern life which so many people forget.

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month and I have agreed to become a ‘Champion’ to promote online safety at this time. I therefore have access to lots of useful resources from campaigns that will be available there.
