The talk was tailored to cover areas of cybercrime that may involve children and teenagers including cyber bullying, online blackmailing and the spreading of unverified messages. Real examples of cases that have been brought to the Courts of Brunei Darussalam were also given during the talk to highlight that such incidents can occur in our nation. The speakers also educated their young audience of the consequences of befriending strangers online whose true intentions may be unbeknownst to them until it is too late. It was highlighted to the students how easily someone can pose as another person online and that the information or personal media they share can be taken advantage of by criminals lurking on cyber space. The students were advised to avoid disclosing personal information online and to immediately inform a guardian or teacher of any concerns they may have.
