National and International ‘Safer Internet Day’ takes place on Tuesday 9 February and with more people working from home and children now having their school lessons online, the need to use the internet more safely and securely has never been greater.

North Yorkshire Police are hosting another of the popular ’Ask the Experts’ evenings to support Safer Internet Day. This online event will consist of a number of presentations from officers from their Cyber Crime Unit and Online Abuse & Safeguarding Unit. Richard De Vere from the Anti-Social Engineer will give an insight into the tricks scammers use to manipulate their victims. As usual there will be the opportunity to ask questions of the panel of experts.
