Staying Safe Online is led by Barry Linton of Thorpe Bay U3A who has worked in IT his whole working life. The popular presentation had great feedback at previous U3A National Conferences and as a national online workshop in September. Barry has agreed to give his talk to NNU3A members.

Barry worked with David Gibbs of Essex Police who heads the Protection Team in the Essex and Kent Serious Crime Directorate.

The online seminar will talk through the risks of being online, steps that can be taken to keep safe and some of the recent scams that have arisen due to Covid-19. As well as the presentation, there will also be an opportunity to ask questions.
