Get Safe Online Global 24

9 Oct 2020 Sandra Bailie    Last updated: 9 Oct 2020

Over the last few years, use of the internet has grown exponentially around the world, driven by the need for convenience, speed and choice on the one hand, advancing technology, wider availability and increasing confidence on the other.

More recently – probably more than any other single event in history – the COVID-19 pandemic has further increased the reliance of individuals, communities and businesses on the internet. For many people around this world, this will fundamentally change the way they communicate, meet, buy and sell, learn, get their entertainment and a host of other everyday things, forever.

However, it has also represented a major opportunity for cybercriminals such as fraudsters and abusers, to perpetrate their sinister work, and continues to do so.

Get Safe Online helps to protect individuals, communities and businesses from online harms. It has lots of useful resources and training on this topic.

Get Safe Online Global24 is a unique, international collaboration to be held on October 15 this year. In conjunction with regulators, educational establishments and private sector organisations large and small, it will be providing valuable but practical back-to-basics advice as well as addressing some of the of particular online safety issues you’re experiencing.

NICVA have partnered with The NI Cyber Security Centre, National Cyber Security Centre and Information Commissioners Office to provide a webinar on Information Governance and Cyber Security as part of this Global campaign. We delighted to have these experts share their knowledge and practical tips on how to keep our information safe and secure.

This webinar is also part of the CFNI Accelerator programme funded by DfC. This webinar is for individuals, trustees, community groups and all types of organisation. 

We really hope you can join us at the webinar on 15 October and play your own vital part in spreading the word and sharing the advice you receive to help protect yourself and others.
