Banco de Portugal publishes brochure on digital security for young people

Today, Banco de Portugal published a brochure for young people on precautions to take when using digital channels to access banking products and services.

This brochure puts together information materials on the #toptip campaign, the campaign on digital financial education that Banco de Portugal launched in early September on Instagram and on the Bank Customer Website.

The brochure is directed at secondary schools across the country and brings together five sets of “tips” to promote the safe use of digital channels:

  • When you use the internet do you have any idea of the risks?

  • Your phone says a lot about you. Protect it.

  • Think before you post.

  • Do you buy online safely?

  • What if you are a victim of online fraud?

The brochure was released during the conference on the challenges for banking conduct supervision promoted by Banco de Portugal.

The brochure was presented before the Secretary of State for Education, João Costa, the Chair of the OECD/International Network on Financial Education’s Research Committee, Annamaria Lusardi, the Advisor on Education to the President of the Republic, Isabel Alçada, and the Director of the Group of Schools General Serpa Pinto (Cinfães), Manuel Pereira.

On this occasion, the Vice-Governor of Banco de Portugal, Luís Máximo dos Santos, symbolically presented the Director of the Group of Schools General Serpa Pinto, Manuel Pereira, with a first set of brochures to be distributed in this school as it has distinguished itself in the implementation of financial education projects.
