The Cyber Safety Lady Workshop for Windows PC and Mac users

Event Dates: 21/03/12 for PC and 28/03/2012 for Mac users

  • Are your kids smarter on computers than you are?
  • Do you know where they go online?
  • Have you and your children got the right privacy and safety settings set up?
  • Are you putting up pictures of your family on Facebook?
  • Are you sure your children can’t access porn?
Without the right privacy settings on Facebook your family photos, can end up anywhere on the internet. Your family photos can be used inappropriately, if you don’t set up your privacy correctly and fix sharing and photo tagging. An anti virus filter or anti porn filter won’t prevent this.
“The Cyber Safety Lady Workshop” is a hands-on Cyber Safety settings workshop for parents of primary and high school aged students.

With a 1/4 of Australian children reporting that they have been bullied online, and many more children inadvertently coming across adults-only content on their home computer, parents urgently need to get home computers set up for safe browsing.
