The Internet and all digital technology are now an essential part of our lives, providing many positive experiences for families and teachers, and it’s being used at an ever-younger age.

Cyber safety is an extraordinarily important pre-requisite for making the most of the opportunities the Internet has to offer, so it is absolutely important to become aware of (and master) the techniques and tools to ensure safe navigation, avoiding information theft and identity, from external attacks or malware intrusion. Without our involvement (parents and teachers), children are left to self-regulate in a world that is not moderated.

Objectives: Cyber security training serves to educate users about the potential risks they face when surfing the Internet, using communication tools such as social media, downloading applications, using e-mail, online games, and accessing potentially dangerous sites. In short, the main objective is to help participants understand clearly the importance of online safety, learn to recognize potential threats and impacts as well adopting good browsing practices, defend against cyber attacks, and respond to emergencies. Plus, know how to keep various security systems active and up-to-date in order to integrate this knowledge into activities, as well as transfer it to their peers/students to disseminate good practices. Vulnerability to malware attacks, as well as identity theft, can be considerably reduced when users are educated about these risks.
