The course covers ways to avoid your personal information being shared on the internet, how to protect yourself when using social media and how to avoid scam telephone calls. The internet is great for keeping in touch and helping us save time and money but it’s good to understand some simple steps you can take to ensure the information you’re sharing is being used safely and securely and who to contact if you ever have any problems."
