I have to admit that internet security worries me greatly, we keep so much personal information on our home computers, tablets and even smartphones especially as they can store our passwords to many of our accounts if we choose and we do often stay logged into many sites at a time for ease.
I have so many different passwords as I do not like to use the same one all the time but this does lead to problems when I forget which is for which site and account etc, I don’t write them down either as this also leads to problems if it were lost or stolen.
With so much of our lives being on our devices it is essential to have these protected, I use passwords for my devices as my choice method of keeping others out (this includes the kids too), Paul has tried various methods including voice recognition and finger print recognition programmes. Intel Security continuously work hard to keep us safe online by developing new software and hardware including Life Safe which helps sheid your online security on numerous devices with the one subscription, and True Key which means you can log into your devices without passwords by using face or fingerprint recognition.
With technology changing and advancing so quickly I do wonder just what will be the norm once my children are using computers daily (I’m a little way off thankfully as Emmy is only 5 and Harry 2), Paul and I have joked around saying that in the future babies will be implanted with a chip at birth which will have all their personal data contained on it, of course it is entirely possible I guess but I do hope not.
Tots100 have teamed up with Intel Security to giveaway a family ticket to Bletchley Park.
Bletchley Park, near Milton Keynes, is a heritage site, where visitors can explore some of the iconic WWII Codebreaking Huts and Blocks whilst marvelling at the astonishing achievements of the Codebreakers. Running summer family activities up until 4th September, children can experience top secret workshops learning all there is to know about what it takes to be a Codebreaker then and now.
Intel Security (formerly known as McAfee) runs a brilliant international Cybersecurity Exhibition at Bletchley where you can learn about the ground-breaking work done there, as well as pick up tips and information on staying safe online today.
All you have to do is submit how your children think we should access data in the future. After all, it’ll be today’s young people who shape the future of cyber security in the years to come.

Emmy and I ran the Race for Life last month in loving memory of my wonderful Mother-in-Law Anne who sadly passed away on 14th July. We would be honoured if you would consider sponsoring us to race money for Cancer Research UK.
