World-renowned internet safety expert speaks to students

Cyber safety is an important issue for all of us. Students had the opportunity to listen to Parry Aftab, a world expert in cyberlaw, cyberbullying and harassment, cybercrime and privacy.
Avoiding the dangers of cyberspace

A former corporate-takeover Wall St lawyer, Parry Aftab is now a child advocate and expert in all things cyber. She spoke to students about the digital era and the dangers it poses for the young and naive. Facebook’s chief privacy officer, Chris Kelly, commented “No one knows more about what teens and tweens are doing online, and few understand how to advise the industry as well as Parry does”.

For students, it is vital they understand the power of the internet and the law. Students were indeed fortunate to have the benefit of Ms Aftab’s considerable experience and advice.
