Would you pass a Digital MOT?

To help people feel safe and secure when they’re online, Derbyshire County Council are launching a brand new Digital MOT service.

It’s an online risk assessment tool that has been designed to help people review their online safety and identify any actions they can take to protect themselves.

All you have to do is answer a few simple questions about your online habits and you’ll be able to see the most important steps you can take to avoid falling victim to cyber-scammers.
