Susan McLean Parent Forum

Caring for Kids in an Online World – Cybersafety Solutions

Padua College & the Parent Forum Group will present Susan McLean, Australia's foremost expert in the area of cyber safety and young people.

Susan is the author of Sexts, Texts and Selfies – how to keep your children safe in the digital space, published by Penguin Books.

As a member of Victoria Police for 27 years, Susan recognised the emerging problem of internet harassment when she took her first report of cyberbullying involving a group of Year 8 girls back in 1994. She continued in the police force for many years, researching and training at the highest level internationally, ultimately establishing the organisation's approach to child online safety.

Susan has been employed by the AFL and Cricket Australia as well as many other sporting, corporate, medical and government bodies. She has recently been appointed to sit on the newly established Australian Government Online Safety Consultative Working Group.
