The Community Learning and Development (CLD) service is delighted to be able to offer a new evening class for people who want to know more about staying safe online.
A short on-line course delivered by Keith Stewart will operate over 4 weeks commencing on Thursday 20 August at 19:30 to 20:30.
The course will focus of staying safe on-line and will cover how to spot a fake website, identify scam emails and how to prevent your computer from being hacked.
Keith is keen to help as many people as he can with online security, he said: “I have helped people with their computing needs for the past 5 years and have come across several people who have unfortunately fallen for well-made scams - in 2 cases, losing over £5,000 to scammers. It is the hope that I can prevent other people from falling from such scams, that has made me create this course. Everything will be in down-to-earth language, so it will be accessible to anyone, no matter your experience.”
To reserve a place, please send a cheque for £24.00 (payable to Orkney Islands Council), including your name, address, telephone number and email contact to: Community Education, Orkney Islands Council, School Place, Kirkwall, KW15 1NY.
