Recommendations

Parents and I thought you were engaging; it became apparent when we unmuted our mics, for everyone to share their gratitude. It has since made me consider many more app settings. We will look into sustaining such practical cybersecurity discussions at our school, in a practical and matter-of-fact manner during our co-curricular space. I would be more than happy to give you a recommendation for your service. With appreciation for your engagement, and until next time.

A perfect Lunch & Learn talk for our team all over Europe, nearly 100 people there. Tips, tricks and interesting facts. The Poll at the end said 100% of attendees would recommend talk, I've never seen anyone even ask that question in a Zoom Poll.

Thanks very much to Graham for delivering a really interesting talk (Zoom) for all the parents of our school. The talk really uncovered and showcased to us all how many of the new Apps that we know are on our children's phones / tablets / playstations, but really didn't know anything about. Many of our parents commented that they were 'shocked' at the revelations but that they now felt better equipped to put measures in place to protect their children online thanks to the advice on this presentation. One of our parents summed it up best, "I just felt that the children, even the youngest ones, were so far ahead of me in terms of what they know about these gadgets, at least now I've caught up, I still haven't passed them out, but I know now how to set the privacy settings which means a lot to me". A very informative, interesting and well run presentation..

Graham presented a live online session to our parents about online safety. The uptake for this was much larger then we have had previously for ‘face to face’ presentations and is certainly the way to go we feel. The content was spot on and covered areas that were both generic and also parent led (based on the pre-presentation questionnaires completed by our parents). Graham has an extensive knowledge of current trends to be aware of in such areas as social media, Youtube, Google, and has easy to follow steps on how to ensure students / children access these safely. His website BeSecureOnline also has a vast amount of information that our parents who attended can now access. I’d recommend Graham Mulhern everytime.

Facebook deny knowing Instagram is harmful to teenage girls

Facebook is in trouble again and it's their internal research showing beyond doubt that Instagram is bad for girls body image, self-esteem and low confidence.

Facebook's reaction was to downplay this and deflect blame onto others upsetting people more. Since being published in The Wall Street Journal, Facebook employees past and present have admitted it to be true.
