Special Parents & Carers Privacy Salon Pt2 Re-scheduled for 17/02/20

DUE TO PEOPLE BEING UNABLE TO ATTEND LAST WEEK, WE HAVE RE-SCHEDULED THE 2ND DATE TO WEDNESDAY, 17/02/20

As part of the activities around Safer Internet Day 2021, in collaboration with BEE SECURE we are doing a Privacy Salon addressed at parents & carers. This Salon is in 2 parts, the workshops can be standalone, but most benefit will be gained by attending both.

Dates:
Wednesday 17/02/21, 18:30-20:00

Address:
ONLINE: https://bbb.opencloud.lu/b/chr-djj-uup

OBJECTIVES

• upskill participants, giving them tools, tips, tricks & strategies to deal with digital privacy
• apply those skills to kids and the Internet.

SOME TOPICS

First session

• Personal Identifiable Information (PII)
• password management
• blocking trackers
• secure connections
• social media best practices

Second session

• Kids Personal Identifiable Information (PII)
• parental controls
• tracking apps & privacy
• Age differences & content access

Parenting/caring in relation to the Internet can be very stressful for many reasons, one of them being that parents and carers are expected to guide their kids through the online world while they often feel they don’t have the appropriate skills and knowledge themselves.

This is highlighted more than ever in the current situation where many are working from home, sometimes home-schooling their kids, creating more stress and where online cyber attacks, scams and hoaxes are increasing dramatically.

The Parents Privacy Salon aims to provide training in basic Internet privacy/security concepts both related to parents/carers as well as their children. The workshops will enable parents & carers to understand and protect their own privacy, and consequently be better equipped to help their kids navigate the complex, exciting world of connected communications.

The Parents Privacy Salon training consists of two workshops giving practical advice and tips, showing participants some tools to use on computers, smart phones and tablets and how to install and use them.

LUXEMBOURG Digital Privacy Salon is free, intended for everyone, no prior technical expertise is assumed.

Next ONLINE Digital Privacy Salon 17/11/20: Everyday Privacy Protecting Alternatives

Everyday we use tools to communicate and work over the Internet, even more so in the pandemic situation we are currently in. The majority of these tools are sucking up and monetising our information, but what can we do if we want to work & communicate while protecting our privacy at the same time?

Following on from the discussions in the last Privacy Salon, in this edition we’ll be looking at some tools & platforms to do just that, exploring the background issues and showing how they are used in real world contexts.
