Event Details

Online safety is hurtling to the top of the public agenda, amid an epidemic of cybercrime, rocketing mental health problems among young people, and growing fears about the corrosive effects of deepfakes. 

Lorin LaFave has experienced the tragic failure of our system first hand. Her son Breck was groomed and murdered by an online predator in 2014. Since then, she has campaigned tirelessly for criminal justice authorities and tech giants to wake up to the online dangers to individuals and society. 

Lorin and our candidate Edward Lucas appeared together on ITV’s Good Morning Britain to discuss this issue. Edward used to cover cyber-security for the Economist and wrote a book, Cyberphobia, in 2015 to highlight the dangers posed by online anonymity.

Don’t miss this thought-provoking evening with a leading campaigner on a vital and topical issue.
