...to our Key Stage 3 and 4 assemblies on the 7th and 10th February respectively.
Michał Kurek, works as Partner at KPMG Advisory. He is responsible for the development of cyber security services and leads one of the biggest teams of cybersecurity professionals in Poland who help to protect companies from hackers and cybercrime. As well as his role in KPMG, he leads the Polish Chapter of OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project), a global, non-profit organisation that helps improve the security of internet applications.
This year, the theme for Safer Internet Day is ‘Free to be me – exploring identity online’ and it encourages young people to explore how they manage their online identity, and how the internet shapes how they think of themselves and others.
Michał’s presentation will focus on some of the safety aspects of this issue. He will be talking to the students about the importance of cyber security and how to protect their identity online, and includes advice on how to avoid phishing attacks, the safe use of social media, cyber bullying, using smart phones smartly, online gaming, and cyber attacks. There will also be a chance for students to ask Michal questions.
I am sure that the students will benefit greatly from Michał’s expertise and experience in this field.
