Premier David Burt stopped by the Safer Internet Day at St. Paul’s Centennial Hall in Hamilton to support the Bermuda Government Department of ICT Policy & Innovation work in educating Bermuda’s seniors on how to remain safe online.

The Government posted the photos online below, the Premier tweeted, “Stopped by Safer Internet Day 2019 to support the Bermuda Government Department of ICT Policy & Innovation work in educating Bermuda’s seniors on how to remain safe online. During my remarks, I reminded attendees that no Government official will ask you to send money online, and if you receive any messages, to report them.”

The Government previously said, “This year’s event will focus on the 4Rs: Respect, Responsibility, Reasoning and Resilience. Attendees will learn about the many ways to use the Internet in a secure way, to adopt safe social media practices, and to appreciate the many benefits of eReaders and other technology tools.

“Most importantly, they will receive information about the real dangers that are lurking online. One fraudulent practice, which is increasingly affecting our seniors, is lottery scams. A lottery scam is a type of advance-fee fraud which begins with an unexpected email notification, phone call, or mailing [sometimes including a large check] claiming that ‘You have won!’a large sum of money in a lottery.

“Seniors will be given tips on what to look for and how to protect themselves from this common form of cyber-attack. They will also receive information about the importance and availability of a plethora of personal security devices that can help them feel safe on- and off-line.”

    Finally showing face; regiment, now this. Although this is a definitely a great thing to offer our seniors, one has to question the photo ops all of a sudden. Oh, that’s right… way too many trips and giving away our funds to law breakers and those still under investigation, and so much reckless spending would mean out of pocket money so can’t afford as many first class flights and hotels and fine dining at our expense. Shame he’ll have to remain in Bda for a bit and maybe, just maybe, get a clue regarding how many are struggling to survive.
