Staying Safe online - Cyber Security Training session

Alert message sent 24/10/2021 18:58:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

Hello everyone,

I am pleased to announce that we have arranged some training on Cyber Security with Thames Valley Police.

The session lasts for one hour, and there will be 30 minutes at the end for questions.

It is based on advice from the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) on securing laptops, smartphones and other devices.
This includes creating strong passwords with Multi-Factor Authentication, shopping securely online and reporting suspicious emails.

The presenter will be Mark Godsland who is a Cyber Protect Officer with Thames Valley Police.
He regularly runs information sessions on Cyber Security across Berks, Bucks and Oxon, and has a wealth of knowledge on the subject.

We are running the same session twice, the first is online using Zoom and the second at a local community centre. Details are:

Zoom session
Tuesday 2nd November – 7pm to 8.30pm

Face to face session
Wednesday 24th November – 12 noon to 1.30pm
New Priestwood Community Centre, Bracknell

Attendance will be limited to registered participants.

If you would like to attend one of the sessions please email me at: using the same email that you used to register as a member of Neighbourhood Watch.

If you are interested but can’t make it, we can repeat the session either online or at local venues if there is enough demand. Let me know with any suggestions for dates, and venue if you prefer the face to face training.

Future events
Recognizing and dealing with scams, presented by Trading Standards.
Anything else? Are there any other subjects that you would like to be covered?

Please pass this on to any members who do not have access to email.

Look forward to meeting you at the sessions!

Kind regards,

Paul Adkins
Volunteer: NHW - Area Representative - Bracknell and Wokingham Local Policing Area
