Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A UK headmaster has resigned from his job at a Welsh comprehensive school after allegations that he used school computers to surf the Net for porn. Chris Andrews, 48, was suspended from his post at John Beddoes Comprehensive School at Presteigne, Powys, for "inappropriate use of the Internet", the Times reported. The father of two officially left his £50,000 job six weeks after the suspension. Andrews was said to have been a pioneer for the introduction of the Internet into the rural school during his three years as headmaster. He now faces a disciplinary hearing. The accusations follow the conviction of ageing rocker Gary Glitter, who was jailed for four months last week after pleading guilty to downloading child pornography from the Internet. Glitter had downloaded 4,000 obscene images from the Net, including pictures of children. ®
