The members were really attentive during my presentation and following my session there were many questions about home and personal safety from the audience "
"Many of the questions were related to the increasing fear of cyber-crime which seems to be proliferating many senior internet users. I was very pleased to answer as many questions as I could on this subject, and was also able to point the interested members to the latest edition of the Senior Siren magazine, which now features 2 articles in every edition, which is focused to spreading the senior cyber message to all"
All visitors to the event received a personal copy of the award-winning Senior Siren magazine, which contains a regular feature on cyber-crime in every edition
