Derbyshire Constabulary to host Cyber Awareness Webinar for Safer Internet Day

Tuesday, February 8, is Safer Internet Day 2022, and Derbyshire Constabulary will be hosting a webinar - or an online event - to offer safety advice to people when it comes to using the internet, social media and their emails.

It will be a non-tech awareness session to alert the public of the types of cybercrime, fraud and scams that are so prevalent right now. The webinar will also cover the topic of how people can better protect themselves online.


This session will be of benefit to anyone who uses the internet and email services but is perhaps a little worried or concerned about the pitfalls that exist online. It's also for people who want to upskill their online knowledge; for people who want to know how to spot a scam or a fraudulent email; for those who want to feel safer online and on social media and for those who want to use online services but are not so confident in doing so.


Maybe you're a sole trader or small business owner who knows the power of online but isn't sure how to protect your business from cyber incidents.



The event will cover:

  • Device safety/protection

  • Password guidance and account security

  • Protecting your personal information

  • Using social media safely

  • Social engineering and phishing emails/texts

  • Online shopping & online banking safely

  • Keeping youngsters safe online

  • Safer Internet Day - Using tech responsibly, respectfully, critically & creatively

  • Signposting to further sources of support and resources

  • Where to report

There will be two sessions:

  1. Tuesday, February 8 at 2pm - Eventbrite - Cyber Awareness Session - Safer Internet Day 2022

  2. Thursday, February 10 at 6:30pm - Eventbrite - Cyber Awareness Session - Safer Internet Day 2022 (a repeat of the Tuesday session)
