Safer Internet Day: Club backing worldwide initiative

Today February 6th is Safer Internet Day
Sarah Badley is one of Dorset Police's safer schools officers.
EE is marking Safer Internet Day by announcing rolling out specialist online safety training for staff in its 600 retail stores up and down the UK.
Helen Westerman, the charity's campaigns manager, said: "Children love being in the online space". Finally, as they become ready to graduate as digital citizens, they will be prepared with online financial literacy and cyber crime concepts so that they are future ready. "By utilizing the insight presented in this report, and by implementing the clear recommendations, we can help to ensure that we maximize the vast opportunities provided by digital technology to children, whilst minimizing the risk of harm, for the benefit of all in Sri Lanka" added Mr. Sutton.
"Children aren't emotionally mature enough to navigate all of those risks".
In an ideal world we'd expect good parents to already be doing things like this but that isn't always the case.
The NSPCC workshops include information on apps and their suitability to different age groups, how to manage children's usage of phones and how parents can be positive role models themselves.
We are proud to partner with governments, the private sector and non-government organisations to help keep girls, boys, women and men safe online.
USA official warns of growing threat from North Korea
China has 300 warheads, making it the world's fifth nuclear power, after the US, Russia, United Kingdom, and France. Much of the regime's coal and fuel shipments passed through Chinese, Malaysian, Vietnamese, or Russian ports.
Helen said more and more children are contacting Childline with issues stemming from social media.
The ability to surf freely means children could potentially have access to a wealth of age-inappropriate content, which not only a poses a risk to their own safety and personal data, but also that of their family.
Meanwhile, also to mark Safer Internet Day, cybersecurity company TrendMicro has launched its seventh annual youth internetsafety video competition.
Much has been made recently about the growing issue of technology addiction among young people and teenagers, and the importance of education and healthy boundaries online is vital. "For some people that's great, it gets people connected, but for other children it's really isolating and risky". For certain sites, like YouTube and Instagram, there are quite nuanced settings available that you can set for individual accounts, so be sure to check the settings when your child is setting up the account. A lot of the content isn't suitable for under 18s.
She said: "As today's figures show, the internet can and does have a positive effect on young people's lives but we must all recognise the dangers that can be found online". It can help to assume that they want to use technology safely, responsibly and positively, but sometimes may struggle with that and need your support.
To make it easier for parents to discuss internetsafety with their children, EE has also teamed with Internet Matter to develop "The New Talk".
