Why is it important to stay safe online?

A special event Workshop With Police Scotland and Next Step Initiative

Most of us are ‘connected’ via our laptops, mobile phones, tablets or personal computer. The potential for the internet to be a valuable and a fun resource for entertainment, making friends, keeping in touch and learning is huge. But if you use the internet, you could be at risk of illegal activity or abuse - be it bullying, fraud or something more serious. Unlike seeing someone face to face, on the net, people aren't always what they first seem.

In the same way you learn about safety when you leave the house, it is important to learn how to stay safe online. These are skills that will stay with you for life.


The input will include

  • Cyber bullying
  • Cyber stalking
  • Sexting
  • Identity Theft
  • Online grooming
  • Identity Theft

There will be a Q&A at the end.

Venue: Next Step Initiative, 300 Broomloan Road, Glasgow, G51 2JQ

Friday 2 October, Time: 1pm - 3pm
