Online Safety Conference - Wednesday 7 June, 2023

West Mercia Police would like to invite you to join us for our Online Safety Conference for front-line professionals hosted on Wednesday, June 7th, 2023.

The conference is for "non-technical" professionals such as teachers, social workers, health workers, and police officers who work with the public and need to be aware of basic online and digital risks. The event will feature a series of easy-to-understand sessions based on local incidents and crimes. Attendees will have the option to participate in-person or online and we encourage delegates to attend sessions that are most relevant to their roles.

During the first half of the day we will aim to demystify some of the most challenging online threats we face. Using local cases, we will explain topics that may have previously felt too technical or complex to grasp. We will discuss the basics of cryptocurrency by looking at how young people can use it to deal drugs. We will explain ransomware in simple terms by looking at how a local school ended up in the national headlines after being attacked, and we will examine phishing and the epidemic of fraud and scams that now account for over half of all crime nationally and often targets the most elderly and vulnerable. Our focus will be on what this means for you as a frontline professional engaging with the public. 

The second half of the day will focus on Online Child Sexual Exploitation (OCSE), where we will explore how local children are at risk as both victims and offenders of OCSE. We will delve into the causes and potential prevention opportunities and you'll have the opportunity to hear from a range of professionals in this field, including clinical psychologists, social workers, detectives, and teachers.

Throughout the conference, we hope delegates will share their own professional experiences and challenges. There will be question and answer facilities during each topic area, with an opportunity for discussion following the deliveries and potential further collaboration. In addition to providing valuable CPD for professionals, we hope this conference will act as a springboard for longer-term collaboration and prevention work.

Technology is transforming all of our lives at an eye-watering pace, and we urgently need to come together as professionals to share experiences and ideas about how we can adapt to deliver our respective services to the public in an increasingly online world.
