Avril Ronan is the Global Programme Manager for Trend Micro’s Internet Safety for Kids and Families. On 5th April she delivered an engaging and practical talk called “Internet Safety for Everyone”. Even though a large amount of the content focused on child safety online, the reality is that these key safety principles can be applied across ALL ages. Avril gave many practical tips of how to be safe online and sign posted a number of further resources that parents and everybody can access at any stage.

This event was organised by Breaking The Silence in partnership with Cobh Lions Club. We have a number of sponsors who were absolutely key in making this event happen. They are as follows; Commodore Hotel Cobh, Cobh Edition and Garvey’s Super Valu.
