About The Webinar

Dangers of the Dark Web Demystified

Webinar Runtime: 48 Minutes

In this webinar, cyber security specialist Emma Davis will uncover the real truths behind the dark web. Emma, who provides security training to private companies and has over 10 years teaching experience, will explain the importance of understanding this technology with the ultimate aim of safeguarding children online.

Targeted primarily at Safeguarding teams and ICT Leads, Emma will cover everything from terminology and origins, to practical use and spotting danger signs.

As the web continues to evolve and technology becomes more advanced, the expectation is that schools and safeguarding teams will keep pace in order to protect children online.

The dark web is often portrayed by the media as being used by the more gifted criminal few. However, the reality is that children can easily find themselves amongst this crowd, leaving themselves exposed to dangers which are often more difficult to police and control than more traditional forms of abuse.

In a world where digital and technological innovation has no boundaries, keeping up with the latest trends has never been more important.
