How safe are YOU Online?

18 December 2019 (by admin)

The safety of our children is paramount to us as a school. As part of that we are constantly supporting the children with online safety lesson. However, we (as adults) did not have those lessons at school so how safe are you online? To support adults with their online presence and that of their children Derbyshire County Council have developed the Digital MOT. This is a cyber security assessment tool developed by the Community Safety Unit at Derbyshire County Council, in partnership with the Cybercrime Unit at Derbyshire Constabulary.

The MOT will take less than 5 minutes to complete and you will find out how safe you are and how you could be safer online.

The MOT website says, “Phones, computers and tablets are part of everyday life - online banking, shopping, email and social media. But the longer you spend online, the more risks you are exposed to. So it's more important than ever to take steps to protect your accounts, data and devices from cyber criminals. By answering a few simple questions, we'll tell you the most important things you can do to protect yourself online. We'll email your personalised results in a colour-coded way.” I have already do the MOT and found it useful for me and my children. I hope you do too.

The MOT can be found here, just click!
