Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Sunday, September 12th 2021, or created by us.
With increasing numbers of children having their own online bank accounts (some linked to their parent’s accounts) there are some basic security issues that they, their parents, or guardians should all be aware of. The rise of such threats as hacking social media accounts, blackmailing, revenge porn, in-game purchases, and any number of issues from an increasing online presence means that cyber hygiene for children and young people has never been a more important issue. This free event is supported by NIBE.
