My name is Sian, and I am the founder and creator of Cyber Hero CIC. My qualifications include an MSc in Digital Marketing, a Fellowship from the IDM, I have completed Level 3 in safeguarding and Child Welfare and I also have a Diploma in Neuropsychology. As I began to develop my knowledge about digital dangers, I felt compelled to share the information I have learnt with others to help keep children safer online. Also, as a Mum myself I understand the digital difficulties that Parents, Carers and Educational Facilities may face in the modern world.
I am proud to announce that we are a Community Interest Company (CIC), as Director I feel like this company structure fits perfectly with our company’s ethos. As a CIC our primary aims are to:
To allow any member of our community who has access to a digital device to understand and spot dangers that can occur online. Cyber Hero CIC can also have a positive benefit on the community improving a child overall welfare and wellbeing both on and offline.
By providing CPD approved courses we enable individuals to widen their own E-Safety Knowledge to enhance their career as well as keeping children safe online. Our also allow people to build up their educational portfolio at a reasonable cost this in turn helps students, unemployed people and people who would like to further their career.
Offline training allows us to reach more members of our community who want to learn more and ask questions about online dangers. This approach helps us reach people who aren’t as technologically savvy to understand digital dangers a little more. We believe that Cyber Hero CIC benefits both digital and physical communities though, wellbeing and providing support.
Cyber Hero CIC enables schools and education providers to localise all of their e-safety and safeguarding information and to invest in their staff too.
I am extremely passionate about keeping children safer online and the spectrum of information we provide. The reason why the information we provide the information for free is that I do not believe that an affluent parent should have a better chance of helping their child rather that one with a lower social economic status, all children deserve that chance to be helped. It is evident that there are many benefits of keeping your child or a child in your care for safer online and protecting them from harm just like we would with the offline world, sometimes the boundaries from both worlds collide.
Together I believe we can keep children safer online and make the world a more positive and safer place to be both on and offline.
