Secondary research 2, I have looked at this website as it’s a very good website for young people all ages on how to protect themselves, social networking online, cyber bullying, virus - hacking into someone’s account, talking to people you don't know, help and advice and all sorts of what the internet can do to someone or if your even worried about something or someone. This is a well known site which people do go onto find out more information on this type of stuff.
What is CEOP (child exploitation and online protection?)
Is dedicated to get rid of all harmful things happening to young people by getting rid of them by the sexual abuse to children. The police work with the CEOP as they work together to keep young people of all ages to stay safe. It's their job role to protect the environment so for e.g. from unharmful people attacking someone physically by tracking down the offenders to account with local international forces. Locking up the people who conflict in bad behaviour or doing something that cannot be forgiving in physical abuse to someone. If you walk into a CEOP centre you will find that the police officers specialising in the area of criminality working with professionals from the wider children protection and community.
Who is the CEO?
Peter Davies is the Chief Executive of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre bringing with him over 20 years experience in front line and strategic policing roles. He rolled in on November 2011 from Lincolnshire police where he had worked in child protection over many years. He worked as an assistant chief constable with responsibilities like for the protective services. This involved leading a number of national and international significant crime enquiries encompassing the distribution of indecent images of children. Peter joined Lincolnshire Police in 1999, from Thames Valley Police, as East Division Commander. He was appointed Assistant Chief Constable in 2003. Among his responsibilities in that role were child protection, serious crime investigation and extensive partnership work to safeguard children and vulnerable young people. He recently completed a secondment to Nottinghamshire Police focusing on improved crime reduction and detection and has held national responsibilities on behalf of ACPO for several years.
Cyber bullying is when someone online so for e.g. msn writes something deliberately to that person calling them fat or saying unforgiveable things being malicious nasty to that person or even when someone gets one of your photos and manipulates in something else deliberately sends to that person or even to everyone in their email contacts this a form of cyber bullying. So block that person if there bullying online stop them from this!!! By using mobile phones the internet is affect of bullying it doesn't nesscarlily have to be at school it can happen within your own home.
By cyber bulling this can upset people, make them worried of what they’re going to do, make them feel alarmed threatened by this persons actions. Someone can even post something anonymous without you knowing who they are like publishing something on website like a picture or even a video which can occur of an audience but some people may not know if there doing something to upset someone they might be even messing around with that person. So you got to be careful in what you do post up, as that person might be hurtful by it.
Cyber bulling someone else??
If you know someone that is being cyber bullied or have seen nasty profiles or messages going around, it is your duty to report it. Cyber bullying is really scary for the person being bullied as the audience can be huge, loads of people could be seeing the mean things that have been said and done. If you see anything that looks like cyber bullying, it is your duty to report it. Tell an adult you trust about what is going on and they will be able to help offer support to the person who is being bullied. Standing back and letting it happen can be just as bad. If you are worried that someone is getting threatened or hurt by others, offer them support or inform an adult you trust so they can help make it stop.
What can I do??
A good thing will be to save all evidence on the laptop by saving it in your folder. So if someone doesn't believe you will have back up evidence of that person of what they have been saying or what they have done. Or if it's on your phone save the txt messages and the voice mails can all be evidence as proof.
You got to be careful of the information you give out on your profile. You got remember that you don’t know who your friends are because any of them they could give out more information onto someone else who you don't know. You don't know what they will do with your phone number if you give out your number without realizing so you got to be careful. You want to think about twice when writing up your statues because anyone could follow you there without realizing that someone watching you. So should put a little information on your profile so you don't get any stalkers on the loose. Or even if your writing on your wall about something or someone would you want your mum , dad or anyone else seeing it if no then don't post it up because your profile could be seen by everyone so it may be a public so everyone sees what you’re doing and who you are .
If you feel anyone is being weird with you or your friends; or if someone is bullying you on one of these sites – contact the administrator of the chat area. If they don’t get back to you – you might want to think twice about using the site again.
If it’s really serious – like you think the person contacting you may be an adult who wants to abuse you or your mates, report the issue on this think u know site using Click CEOP
Out in the real world there always people that are weird and like hanging about all the time and using the internet too. If someone is saying something in appropriate to you saying sexual things or asking you to do things that make you feel uncomfortable save the conversations and block them instantly stopping them from contacting you and report it using the CEOP report. Some people seem really nice friendly but they do things and say stuff that makes you questioning them.
Hacking and viruses
It can be really annoying if someone hacks into your account being you. Or even getting a virus on your laptop. To help yourself from hackers it’s a good idea to use a strong password so for e.g. using capital letters symbols numbers so it be less easy to get into your account with all the different symbols and low /caps letters so be hard to get into your account which is a good idea to stop hackers getting on to your stuff. It's a good idea to keep your password private so don't tell your friends even though there your friends they might hack into your account you never know who your real friends are. You should change your password slightly to other accounts so that if someone does get hold of your password they won't be able to get into your other accounts.
If your account has already been hacked, go into your account and change the password immediately. If you have been locked out of your account, contact the hosts of the website to ask for either, the account to be opened to you or deleted completely.
