Gone Phishing


Year 9 have been working on the subject of eSafety this month. As part of their work towards

completing their BCS Level 1 eSafety qualifications they’ve been considering some common risks

to online security including;


  • Phishing
  • Viruses
  • Malware
  • Spam


As well as learning about these online danngers Year 9 have spent some time trying to develop help and

advice for others. You can listen to the results of their eSafety Radio Shows by using the links below.


Phishing is a malicious attempt to trick you into providing personal information, such as username,

password or other sensitive information. The attempt is normally made by fraudulently posing as a legitimate

organisation. A classic example of a phishing attack is an email, claiming to be from your bank, which asks you 

to provide your login information in order to safeguard your account. Anyone who provided that information might well find it being used to gain criminal access to their bank accounts.


Thanks to Year 9 for some super work.
