We provide Age appropriate Talks and Information, about the internet, from 3rd class to 6th class. We explain the dangers of the internet, in a friendly way, using real and practical examples for kids. We always assess and adapt the Talk to the specific class on the day. The recommended social media age is 13 years old at the moment. Do they actually need social media? How and what to post – we give advice.
SnapChat, Instagram, Social Media, Online bullying, sexting and its devastating consequences. We have dozens of real life examples to drive home the points.
What Teenagers don’t know about the internet. We have some straight talking facts that will shock “know it all” Teenagers. Personal data and how Google, Facebook know more about them, than their own family, and how they use that information to their advantage. Online reputation and the importance of developing your digital reputation properly for jobs, sports and life.
Online reputation is a really important concept that everyone needs to understand and embrace. Your online activity, posting activity defines your online presence. That every job interview starts with a review of their social media profiles.

BeSecureOnline principal Graham Mulhern is frequently interviewed on radio about Social Media, internet safety, online bullying, online scamming .
What they’re saying
I would highly recommend Graham Mulhern & his BeSecureOnline Team speakers for schools on internet safety. The topics addressed were very apt and useful and our students learned things they weren't aware of about the use of social media, privacy settings and about cyber-bullying and data sharing.

Delighted to have Graham visit our school to consolidate our work done for Safer Internet Day and our own Safer Internet Week.
His key term "online reputation" is of utmost importance in this day and age and children are never too young to be aware of this. We have used it on many occasions since his visit.
Graham held the children's interest throughout and fully answered any questions they had. His manner was easy going and he involved the pupils in his presentation keeping it age appropriate at all times.
