Safeguarding Children Online and Cyber Security for Adults with John Parsons.
The Internet is a target-rich and offender-friendly environment.
Online paedophiles are drawn to children’s vulnerability online. Topics include teaching parents how to safeguard their children online by reducing the expression of vulnerability. The impact of pornography is devastating for young people and this presentation advises how to limit exposure in the early years of a child’s life. John will also talk about screen time, the importance of sleep and its impact on educational outcomes for children.
Senior citizens are considered asset rich and isolated by criminals. John works with adults who have had thousands of dollars and in some cases, their life savings stolen by criminals. In the second half of the delivery John identifies strategies to reduce the risk of becoming the victim of a financial cybercrime.
