• CensorNet to clarify latest Government guidelines at BETT

        • Cloud security company, CensorNet, has announced it will be exhibiting at BETT from 25th to 27th January. During the event, CensorNet advisor Dr Brian Bandey will be discussing how Anti-Radicalisation and Terrorism obligations affect e-Safety in Education.

          The latest Statutory Guidance on ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ came into force in September 2016 and addresses the requirement for educational establishments to have due regard to prevent children from being drawn into terrorism. Schools must implement measures to control that children are safe from terrorist and extremist material when accessing the Internet in school.

          The guidelines are a set of complex legal obligations and yet they need to be understood if teachers are to effectively exercise the e-Safeguarding functions. Dr Brian Bandey’s series ‘Keeping Children e-Safe in Education – A Law-Based Resource for the Department of Education Statutory Guidelines’ aims to explain the obligations and make it clear how they fit into a school’s wider e-safeguarding policies.

          Dr Brian Bandey said, “education Law is now the law of higgledy-piggledy. It has been built so by heaping one statute upon another, such as codifying Safeguarding to include e-Safeguarding. By adding new positive statutory obligations on the subject of Anti-Radicalisation, the law-makers have added a new tier of e-Safety obligations. Now educators must look to the school, academy or college IT infrastructure as an avenue through which the discharge of their legal e-obligations may be overthrown by the dark side of the internet.”

          CensorNet enables educational establishments to provide safe Internet access for all students and staff and provides the means to regulate and protect internet activity and the use of cloud applications across all devices through its Unified Security Service. CensorNet's suite of services offer schools the tools needed to protect students and staff and to stay compliant, at the same time as allowing them to use email and the web in a safe way.

          Dr Bandey will be available to meet with educators at BETT on the CensorNet stand from 10.30am - 3pm on 25th and 26th January.
