Hello and welcome to Blukleen, my little piece of internet real estate for all things cyber security. I’m Brandon Widdet and I’ve been working as a freelance cyber security consultant for over 15 years.
The purpose of Blukleen is to share my experiences and learnings from my work and how we can improve the safety of online users. In recent years, my focus has been around cyber safety for kids as it holds a special place in my heart.
The key themes I write about mainly are –
- Cyber Safety for Children
- Cyber Security for Companies
- Safety Control Software
- Internet Scams and How to Spot Them
Cyber safety and security is a unique problem in our world today. The same issues occur no matter the country and no matter the people, we all face similar issues when it comes to being hacked, cyber stalked or bullied, avoiding online predators, and keeping your money firmly in your pocket.
I’m truly passionate about educating both young and old alike about the potential dangers of being online, and there is a particular quote which really strikes me –
“When I was a child, my parents told me not to believe everything I hear, yet nowadays, they believe everything they read on Facebook”
If you are interested in learning more, please subscribe to my blog updates or connect with me via social media. I promise it will be something that you can believe on Facebook 🙂
