Our events calendar is populated with a mixture of NIBE events or events from partner organisations and our wider network. All events profiled are connected to general business ethics or hone in on a contemporary ethical topic or concern. These events occur across the North East and are an opportunity to learn, reflect, debate, share best practice and most importantly, connect and network with others.

At NIBE, we guarantee a warm welcome and we look forward to meeting you at a future event.

Cyber Security for Children and Young People – part of #CyberFest 21 @ Online
Sep 29 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

With increasing numbers of children having their own online bank accounts (some linked to their parents accounts) there are some basic security issues that they, their parents or guardians should all be aware of. The rise of such threats as hacking social media accounts,  blackmailing,  revenge porn, in-game purchases and any number of issues from an increasing online presence, means that cyber hygiene for children and young people has never been a more important issue.

This event is part of #CyberFest 21, the North East’s biggest cyber security festival, now in its fourth year.
