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.
You will require a glow login for this webinar.
The target audience for this webinar is early learning and childcare practitioners and primary teachers
The National e-Learning Offer (NeLO) brings together the live learning option from e-Sgoil, recorded content led by West Partnership (West OS) and supported materials identified by practitioner networks and organised by Education Scotland. The webinar will inform and update participants on what is available through NeLO.
The main focus of this third webinar is to explore the suite of national e-learning resources available for use with learners in ELC and primary schools. It will share the rationale behind the approaches and discuss ways in which they can flexibly be used in practice – both in settings and at home.
