General eSafety tips Mr Pearce Network and Infrastructure Manager
What do Ofsted say? e-safety may be described as the schools ability: to protect and educate pupils and staff in their use of technology to have the appropriate mechanisms to intervene and support any incident where appropriate. 3 main areas of risk: content: being exposed to illegal, inappropriate or harmful material contact: being subjected to harmful online interaction with other users conduct: personal online behaviour that increases the likelihood of, or causes, harm. Pupils in the schools that had managed systems had better knowledge and understanding of how to stay safe than those in schools with locked down systems.
What protection is in place? Acceptable Use Agreement Establishes rights and responsibilities Signed by all students in Year 7 & 12 Need reminders? Bloxx web filtering to restrict access to: Social media sites, etc Sites with inappropriate content Impero monitoring software Monitors keyboard input Logs concerning activity (based on key words) Human filtering (due to an awful lot of false positives) Only applies to our network we cant monitor 3/4G connections!
Protecting Privacy (except from assembly) 1.You do not share your password 2.You do not share your password 3.Pick a password thats hard for other people to guess Most hacking is nothing of the sort! A few random words works well Change it if you think someone else knows it Use different passwords for different sites 4.Do not assume any communication online is private! Text conversations may be shared with or without your knowledge Images may be shared, stored, edited or commented upon 5.Check your privacy settings Ask a friend or Student Digital Leader if youre not sure
Reporting (excerpt from assembly) If you see something bad, or feel threatened, use the CEOP site to make a report Better safe than sorry Act sooner rather than later All sites have ways of reporting inappropriate content or behaviour Typing the site name and Reporting into Google is usually enough to find out how to do it Do not engage in conversation Block first, ask questions later.
Perennial issues Shared logins Breaks the first two rules! Applies to social media and network accounts Fallings out Particularly an issue coupled with the above Fake accounts Impersonation prohibited by Social Media AUPs A form of cyber-bullying
In summary Encourage your daughter to: Be careful with her password and other personal details Think about what she posts online: What effect might her posts have on others? What effect might her posts have on her (particularly in the future)? Check her privacy settings Report any unwanted activity: To you To us To the service To CEOP (in extreme cases) Talk with you about what shes doing online
