A compromised account leads to a vicious attack

Digital risks are not new. In 2008 Gail Hdili was blinded in one eye and left scarred by the "frenzied" attack by her ex-partner. Gail had left her abusive ex and found a place of safety. Her location was compromised by an online account: Gails partner knew her login details to her eBay account. He waited for her to buy an item and then used the new delivery address to find her.
Although the agencies working with Gail and her children had moved her to a place of safety they simply didnt realise the digital risks.
Today, online safety is of paramount importance, yet seven years on from Gails horrific experience many professionals working with vulnerable victims are still unaware of the need to have a safeguarding plan that includes digital.
Digital-Trust is here to help to make it easier to keep people safe and to step-by-step demystify the difficulties of staying safe online.
