Chesterfield Town WI had an enjoyable and informative talk from Digital PCSO Sarah Dufton about how to keep safe online.
She shared a lot of useful resources and a few key links are listed below:
* Take the digital mot for tips tailored to your usage: www.saferderbyshire.gov.uk/mot
* Check if your email address has ever been compromised at: www.haveibeenpwned.com
* Download the HollieGuard personal safety app to alert designated contacts if you're in danger. Find out more: https://hollieguard.com
* Sign up to www.derbyshirealert.co.uk for alerts relevant to your local area
Don't forget to the top 3 things to prevent 80% of cybercrime:
* Passwords - don't use the same password for multiple accounts. The latest recommendation is 3 random words e.g. teaCatBiscuit2
* Antivirus - on any device that accesses the internet
* Updates - they can be annoying but they're necessary to fill cracks in your online safety wall

Visit to Radio Nottingham - Thursday 29 March 2018
Some Media Hub Sub-committee members and friends visited the Radio Nottingham and East Midlands Today Studios. Chrissie read the news about a 115 year old hot cross bun and they all sat on the red sofa to see how the weather is presented by Anna Church. The gallery area was really interesting, Eastenders was showing and the local TV presenters were ready and waiting for their next slots. Could this be Chrissies next big challenge!
