Shelly-Ann Thompson, founder/director of Golden Designs Limited

A cyber security awareness seminar for seniors will be held on Saturday, March 25 at Regardless, the Manley Centre which is located at 4 Washington Drive, Kingston 10.

Start time is 11:00 am.

The organiser, Golden Designs, says the seminar is being held in light of the increasing number of online scams targeting seniors. The main speaker will be Kenton Roberts, Group IT Officer, Guardsman Group Technology Team, who will be sharing his expertise on how to stay safe in the digital world.

“We understand that cyber security may not be the most exciting topic, but we promise you that the seminar will be informative, engaging, and even a little bit fun,” said Shelly-Ann Thompson, founder/director of Golden Designs Limited.

“You will learn about the latest online scams, how to create strong passwords, and how to protect your personal information. Plus, you'll get a chance to meet and chat with other senior citizens who are interested in staying safe online,” Thompson added in her pitch to the target group.

Thompson emphasised that the seminar is designed with seniors in mind.

“We will provide easy-to-understand explanations, and there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and receive personalised advice. So, come with your devices: phones, laptops, or tablets ready to receive assistance on how to use them properly,” she said.

Thompson said it is important for seniors to attend seminars like these in light of the fact that they are being increasingly targeted by scammers and cyber criminals.
