Internet Resilience Presentations

 


Internet Resilience - presentations that are twelve years in the making...

 
What began as Teen Safe in 2008 has now morphed into an internet safety information programme that incorporates instruction to young people in primary and secondary schools; teachers, counsellors and other support staff; people with special needs or interests; and carers and residents at residential care units throughout the country.
 
The programme now incorporates data from our extensive research activities of Irish bad actors online which have been ongoing since 2012; investigative experiences gained through corporate and information security activities; digital forensics that we have undertaken for schools where difficulties arise through misuse of computer equipment, and individual families struggling to understand unexpected difficulties that arise in young peoples lives. Indeed, we have illuminated difficulties that no one had any awareness of at all.
 
On occasion, we have helped those that need to make reports of wrongdoing against young people and in some cases made necessary reports on their behalf.
 
Since 2008, we have been visiting about 30 to 50 schools in a given September to June school year. Sometimes we address very small classes in very small schools, and sometimes individual year groups or all year groups in schools of 1,400+ students. That’s a lot of presentations, to a awful lot of students.
 
When you book an Internet Resilience talk from ChildWatch.ie — that is the practical experience base that you are drawing from. We combine both presentation material (consisting of evidential elements that we have processed) and demonstration of commercially licensed software and techniques that give a very practical feel to our offering. When we discuss people’s vulnerability to online search, facial recognition, mobile phone hacking, stolen credentials, geo-location, graphing social media relationships etc, it’s the practical live demonstration of what we are presenting that generates the shock and awe and not some overtly sensational list of threats to safety laced with everlasting damnation.
 
In other words, those attending see the practical application of the vulnerabilities that we are discussing. Anyone parenting their own young people or has taught or cared for young people will tell you that you can say what you like, but the proof is in the experience and that is where Internet Resilience excels.
 
In creating the Teen Safe series and now its successor, Internet Resilience, we had one criteria in mind — it had to be something that WE would want to attend. We believe that we have created just that!!
 
ONE OTHER SMALL MATTER: 
We are OPEN with our COSTS (which we have ALWAYS published online) and we protect those booking our presentations by maintaining PROFESSIONAL INDEMNITY INSURANCE for public speaking, writing, media, and IT professional services.
