New Data Protection laws (the GDPR or General Data Protection Regulation) will come into force on 24th May 2018. The new laws will make data protection more rigorous and will lead to large fines for organisations (including schools) that are not compliant.

Half of young people online suffer abuse and bullying

Almost half of young people surveyed have experienced threatening, intimidating or nasty messages online. 
And of these, 14% said they had been a victim of cyber bullying, according to a study YoungMinds and The Children's Society.
Many young people said their personal information had been shared publicly, they had been excluded from conversations or groups online or received persistent messages from someone after asking them to stop.

FlashMeeting Retirement Of Service

E2BN will no longer be supporting or offering the Flashmeeting Video Conferencing Service due to increasing technological issues with the platform. We have, therefore, decided to end all support for Flashmeeting with immediate effect.

E2BN provided this safe and reliable VC service to schools and educational establishments around the World for over 15 years. We were proud and excited to offer this straightforward solution at a time when VC usually required schools to purchase high-end equipment. However, technology moves on and there are now many, often free, platforms that make video conferencing an everyday possibility in the classroom. 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the termination of the service.
