Susan McLean is Australia's foremost expert in the area of cyber safety and young people.

Widely regarded as Australia’s first cyber cop, she was a member of Victorian police for 27 years and took her first reported case of cyber bullying, amongst Year 8 girls, in 1994!

Her best selling book Sexts, Texts and Selfies has just launched a second edition and in this interview she shares all the latest insights.

I found this conversation with a Austlalia’s cyber cop so helpful and I think you will too.

Here's just some of what we cover in this episode:

  • how to deal with cyberbullying
  • sexting, its reality and the new laws surrounding this
  • sextortion and image based abuse – the risks and the reality
  • how to manage your child's digital reputation 
  • how to establish and maintain good online habits
  • the good apps and the ones you need to avoid
