‘Online Safety for Women and Girls’ is an online webinar aimed at educating women on how to keep their personal information secure as a prevention tactic against online abuse or harassment. It is part of a wider piece of work within our Violence Against Women and Girls strategy which, among other activity, looks to empower and educate women and girls.
The session covers staying safe online, managing your personal information, location-tracking enabled apps and tracking devices, and much more on how to recognise any safety concerns online and what to do if you come across them. Although aimed at women and girls’ safety, this session is open to anyone who feels at risk or wants to educate themselves, including parents, professionals, teachers, and young people themselves.
The session is being run by Cyber Protect Officer Megan Haldane.
