e-Safety – the safe and responsible use of technology – is sometimes presented as primarily a child protection issue. While children, young people and vulnerable adults do need support to keep themselves safe online (see Safeguarding), the risks associated with the use of technology are not confined to them. e-Safety issues may also affect adults – for example, the mismanagement of personal data, and risks of financial scams, identity theft and cyberbullying. This will be particularly relevant for those adults who are new to using technology.There is wealth of online resources to support organisations and individuals in keeping safe online.

The WorkSmart Not Safe For Work? website from the TUC includes offers an online safety toolkit, which includes video tutorials and quizzes on malicious software, identity theft, using IT equipment in the workplace and safeguarding your privacy online

The Information Commissioner's Office also has some very good resources to support online personal safety.
