Are you esafe? 3 Cs of esafety
Can be made via the Internet easily and it can mean that people have access to groups they would not normally have access to.
- How you appear on the web may affect your your future employment.
- Did you know that you can get or lose jobs because of postings on Twitter or Facebook?
- If you feel unsure about the contact that has been made via the Internet please report the person either to the police, a parent, a teacher, or someone who
can help you. If the contact is made via a social networking site such as Facebook, Myspace or Bebo, you can report the user via the website.
- Do not publish personal details or financial details online.
- Regularly change your usernames and password. Dont share them with anyone.
A mix of letters and numbers in a password adds security; such a password may look like the following; Just4aDay1 or IdRolloutofBed2
- Set your Facebook/MySpace/Twitter etc profiles to private (usually under settings). You wont then be found on Google. Do not put your
name, address and date of birth on any of these sites, as this makes identity theft easier. Consider if your friends are really friends, people you know who wont
use anything you post to your disadvantage.
- Chat rooms. Beware of giving information that criminals might use e.g. address and or when you will be away on holiday.
These are risks such as online gambling, inappropriate advertising and financial scams.
- Beware of Phishing and or financial scams. If you think you are at risk, please report it to the
AntiPhishing Working Group
- Your bank/government/tax office would never contact you via email to ask for information.
- Censor yourself online. Consider what a future employer might think of your postings. As an employer would you consider interviewing someone with the email address
- Google your name with speech marks to see your digital footprint e.g. Jane Sanders. Review the first page of hits. Remember your digital identity is
also what other people have written about you. If you have a common name, it is unlikely the person you see wont be you. If someone else has written negatively
about you, you may want to contact them to ask them to remove their posting.
This covers activities carried out by someone which is deliberately meant to upset someone. This could be via a social networking site, a
website or mobile phone.
Beware of cyber bullies. If you feel you are being bullied please talk to a lecturer, counsellor or someone you can trust.
If you believe upsetting information about someone/something (including the College or lecturers within the College) are being
published or inappropriate activities are occurring please report this to a lecturer, counsellor or a parent.
