The Backgound to Cyber Mann

Cyber Mann started life as a final year dissertation project, as part of studying a University of Chester degree in Cyber Security at the University College Isle of Man.

Two areas in the field of Cyber Awareness and Cyber Security were identified as requiring some attention and these became the focus of the project.

The first area was the amount of publically accessible information and training resources that were tailored to Isle of Man residents.

The second area was the lack of Cyber Security training resources designed for the elderly in our community.

A review of current literature confirmed that the elderly make up a significant pecentage of those who are becoming victims of cyber and cyber related crimes.

Cyber Mann has been developed to help protect the elderly on the Isle of Man by providing an educational resource where residents can learn how to become safer online.
