Webinar catch up. Early Learning & Childcare Practitioner webinar with NCSC: Cyber Security for Childcare providers: why it matters and top tips.

Webinar recording from Friday 26th  February 1300-1330. Early Learning & Childcare Practitioner webinar with NCSC: Cyber Security for Childcare providers: why it matters and top tips.

All childcare providers want to create a safe and secure environment for the children in your care. As we become ever more reliant on digital technology it is increasingly important that you protect data (on children, staff and families), finances and also the integrity of any digital systems you use, including email, communication channels and databases.

There are a handful of steps you can take to minimise the potentially costly and disruptive effect of a cyber incident, and better safeguard the children in your care, as well as your business’s finances and reputation. This short seminar is for anyone working in childcare in Scotland. It is run by the National Cyber Security Centre (www.ncsc.gov.uk), and supported by the Scottish Government, Education Scotland and Care Inspectorate, as part of CyberScotland Week. It will provide you with advice and steps you can take to minimise the likelihood and impact of a cyber attack on your setting, and information about where to get help and advice if you need it.

23 Feb, 1600 – 1700 Supporting children & young people to safely navigate their online lives.

Tuesday 23rd February 1600-1700

You will require a glow login for this webinar.

Staying informed, watching videos, gaming, connecting? What are children & young people doing online and how can we best support them?

The internet has opened up new ways for children and young people to share, connect, chat and friend. Many of these activities are normal and a natural part of growing up, especially for teenagers.

Children & young people themselves have not changed, curiosity about relationships and sex remains the same, but access to the internet has changed the way young people communicate and explore these. Although much of this now happens online, the support and advice which keeps children safe ‘in real life’ will keep them safer online too.

Join us as part of Cyber Scotland Week in this informative webinar to find out what resources exist and where you can access them to support the children and young people you work with.
