Child Safety on St Helena

It seems I’ve neglected this blog for quite a while: while I’ve touched up some of the pages where necessary, I haven’t added any articles. Well, talking of interviews (which I was about six months ago) here’s a transcript (for the ESET blog) of an interview from November 2016 with community radio on St Helena. Here’s a summary from the article.

I was invited to do an interview with Craig Williams – who has a company called Gigabyte IT – on Saint FM. That’s a community radio station on St. Helena, an island way down in the South Atlantic where Napoleon Bonaparte spent the last six years of his life, and which has only recently started to benefit from the mixed blessing of the mobile phone. He (Craig, not Napoleon) came across me via an article to which I contributed some internet safety tips for parents and children a while ago.

In the course of the interview I attempted to answer the following questions:

  1. What advice would you give to parents about their child being safe online?
  2. As a professional security expert, what advice would you give to children about having an online presence?
  3. For an island of around 4,000 people, and with mobile access only made available earlier this year, what would you say needs to be put in place for kids, to fight against cyberbullying and online grooming?
