Cyber safety…why bother?
  Why do we need computer security?
     * To protect our reputation and image
     * To protect our computers and files
     * For our own physical safety

 Do you know this person? NO?
       Then don’t give out any personal
       information about yourself.




THINK: secret identity!

                       Use a nickname!
                          • Nicknames
                                • Choose a nickname that is ambiguous, fun,
                                  fictional, boy, girl, whatever…
                                • You can be anyone you want to be, but don’t
                                  pass yourself off as someone else.




When can I use my real name?
   For friends, family and by
   those that you have met in
   real life.

What about emails?                                  11
       If you don’t know who it’s from, don't open it. Delete it!
       Same with attachments. Delete it!
       Same with electronic greeting cards. Delete it!

           Remember: Don’t give out your personal information
              to people you don’t know in real life.

           Run anti-virus, and spam filtering. Don’t know how?
               Ask your teacher or parent.

           Have a working Firewall protecting your computer.

Other things to remember…

     It’s OK to tell someone what city or county you live in, as
     long as you don’t include anything else.



     Switch off webcams: images can be falsified. Never send a
     picture to anyone you don’t know in the real world



     If anyone ever asks for information about you,
     tell a trusted adult straight away.

What about passwords?

Passwords need to be strong!
Hackers can crack your password using
dictionaries in any language or theme.

                     Passwords
              You need a new password for each login.
     HOW DO YOU REMEMBER THEM ALL?!?!?!?!? EASY!!!
1.   Think of a subject
2.   Think of a short sentence based around that subject
3.   Take some consonants from the sentence (the second letters of
     each word, the last letters in each word) e.g. Book: Harry
     Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone - Harry Potter and the
     Philosopher’s Stone = rPs
4.   Add your favourite number(s) (NOT your age or date of birth)
     e.g. rPs05
5.   Add something from the site: maybe the first few letters of the
     site or your favourite thing on the site e.g. GridClub.com
     becomes: rPs05Gri
6.   Add some symbols to make it stronger {rPs05Gri}
