Susan McLean, Australia’s foremost expert in the area of cyber safety and young people was invited to talk to Year 7, 8 and 9 students last week in the Kobritz Auditorium.
Susan was a member of Victoria Police for 27 years and is widely known as the “cyber cop”. She was the first Victoria Police Officer appointed to a position involving
Cybersafety and young people.
Susan’s vast knowledge and expertise in this area makes her a sought after presenter and advisor.
Susan spoke to the students about leaving a digital footprint that remains on the internet indefinitely. Also, the fact that anonymity does not exist on the internet. Susan urged students to speak up and take action if they are aware of cyber bullying or they
are victims of cyber bullying.
She also emphasised the importance of customising Facebook privacy settings.Share
