Yasmin London talks about:
In the rapidly evolving digital landscape, Digital Resilience has emerged as the most essential skill of the future. The online and offline delineation no longer exists as technology has become increasingly ubiquitous in our lives, and with it, so too has the need to build capacity to navigate the perils and pitfalls of these worlds. With advancements such as generative AI, augmented realities, and immersive technologies, it is crucial that we build resilience to adapt to any digital environment we encounter now, and into the future.
The online world presents numerous challenges; from cyberbullying and online harassment to misinformation and its signifigent impact on mental health. Without the necessary skills to identify harm, and the ability to proactively manage complex online situations to protect our wellbeing, we risk falling victim to these dangers.
Digital Resilience empowers individuals to proactively safeguard themselves, applying practical strategies to mitigate risks and navigate the digital landscape with confidence.
Yasmin’s approachable, confident and knowledgeable delivery of cyber security to our families at Lendlease was a great addition to our family friendly workshops. A pleasure to watch her in action, evident that her years of experience brings the content to life in an engaging way. Highly recommended for adult and child learning in cyber security and being safe online.
