In today’s connected world, the wealth of information and opportunities that technology offers is immense. However, there is a darker side to this digital environment that leaves individuals vulnerable to all kinds of accidental or intentional harm.
Issues can range from access to inappropriate sites due to misspelling, and accidental viewing of pornography and illegal images, to more sinister and intentional harm from predator grooming, cyberbullying, gambling, self-harm and suicide sites, to name but a few of the risks.
Whilst recognising this, children and young people cannot be held back from all the positive benefits offered by information technology that has become an essential part of their everyday world.
