Live Twitter chat as part of Safer Internet Day

8 Feb 2016

Would you like some free expert advice on how to keep you, your family and your business safe from cyber criminals?

Then make sure you log on tomorrow, when Detective Inspector Rich Osgerby from the force Cyber Crime unit will be hosting a live Twitter chat, answering your questions about online safety.

The event is being held as part of this year’s Safer Internet Day, a global event co-ordinated in Britain by the UK Safer Internet Centre, aimed at helping to promote safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology.

This year’s theme is Play Your Part for a Better Internet and, with this in mind, the force will also be sharing top tips on using the internet safely.

But we also want to hear from you.

Whether you want to know more about reducing the risk of falling foul of online scams or how to protect your family from sexual predators or cyber bullies, simply tweet your question to @HP_Cyber using #ShareAHeart between 1pm and 2pm.

If you are unable to take part tomorrow, or you don’t have a Twitter account, you can also email your questions to sarah.howson@humberside.pnn.police.uk.

DI Osgerby said: “When it comes to online safety, there is no such thing as a stupid question – and you can guarantee someone else is wondering about the same thing.

“So, if you have a question about anything from internet banking to using public wifi safely, now is your chance to ask.”
