If someone wanted to harm you or your family, what could they learn by looking at your social media profile?

That's one of the key questions Paulina Greer puts to Neil Walsh, the head of global cybercrime for the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), in this latest edition of our podcast series, The Lid Is On.

The episode features a frank and in-depth look at what the UN is doing to try and protect children from being sexually-abused online.

We discuss the latest threats, and steps that you can take, as a parent or caregiver, to protect your child.

We also hear inspiring advice from Sonya Ryan, whose 15-year-old daughter Carly was groomed online.

She says it's about getting children to see that "not everyone online is who they say they are."

Duration: 28'45"
