Child Protection Programme 2021 Live Webinar Series: Online Safety and Awareness
April 20 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm ISTFree
The NYCI Child Protection Programme is delivering a series of live webinars in 2021 to support the youth sector with some of the key issues impacting them due to Covid-19.
For this webinar, The Child Protection Programme has partnered with CyberSafeKids to offer a live webinar for youth workers, to raise awareness of what children and young people are doing online, and the associated risks and safeguards.
Covid-19 has changed how the youth sector engages with young people online, which introduces new learning and considerations regarding online safety. CyberSafeKids will provide information and guidance on platforms young people are using, and discuss the inherent risks of being online, such as oversharing and privacy, cyberbullying, sexting, grooming and extortion.
The webinar will explore strategies for engaging in young people’s digital lives and empowering them to use technology in a stronger, smarter, and safer way.
The webinar will be delivered by Philip Arneill from CyberSafeKids.
Each session will have a max of 40 people

Established in 2015 and formerly known as CyberSafeIreland, CyberSafeKids is an Irish registered charity which works to empower children, parents, and teachers to navigate the online world in a safe and responsible manner. Our founders and staff have backgrounds in cybercrime investigation, forensic psychology, education, online child protection, academia, and the not-for-profit sector. We can see on a daily basis how technology plays an increasingly important and integral part of their daily lives, especially in the current situation. We want children and young people to be able to embrace the opportunities for learning and enjoyment that technology can deliver, but we must also equip them with the tools to stay safe and avoid harm.
