The University of Suffolk is marking Safer Internet Day by inviting experts to speak at a conference on how to stay safe online.
The Digital Differences conference, on Tuesday, February 5, will include speeches by Professor Andy Phippen, a national expert on social responsibility in IT, and cybersecurity expert Professor Steven Furnell, both from the University of Plymouth.
Professor Emma Bond and research associate Katie Tyrrell, from the University of Suffolk, will then present findings from their Digital Civility project.
Ms Tyrell said their year-long project shows students at the university often have diverse digital footprints, sometimes littered with adverse experiences and abusive comments.
She said: Our project has clearly demonstrated that by working in a holistic way across the student community we can mitigate the risks that students face.”
