Derbyshire Constabulary offer online webinars as part of Safer Internet Day

For this year’s Safer Internet Day, Derbyshire Constabulary are offering two free, non-technical online webinars, hosted by their Cyber Protect Team, covering how to protect yourself and your family online.



Safer Internet Day (Tuesday, February 6) is coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, and sees thousands of organisations get involved to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.


The constabulary's webinars will benefit anyone who uses the internet, email, smartphones and apps.


The topics covered will be:


  • Device safety/protection

  • Password guidance and account security

  • Protecting your personal information

  • Social engineering and phishing emails/texts

  • Online shopping & online banking safely

  • Current threats and trends/scams

  • Protecting your WhatsApp and social media accounts

  • Keeping youngsters safe online

  • This year’s theme is ‘Inspiring change: Making a difference, managing influence and navigating change online’. They will touch upon the things that can influence and change the way young people think, feel and act online and offline

  • Signposting to further sources of support and resources

  • Where to report incidents of cybercrime and fraud



The webinars are available on two dates – Tuesday, February 6, and then again on Friday, February 9.
