For youth , the Internet  and all digital technology is now an essential part of our lives, providing many positive experiences for families and teachers, and it is being used at an ever younger age.

Cybersecurity is an extraordinarily important prerequisite for making the most of the opportunities offered by the Internet, so it is absolutely important to become aware of and master the techniques and tools to ensure safe navigation, avoiding information theft and identity, through from external attacks or malware intrusion.

The goal of cyber security training is to educate users about the potential risks they face when surfing the Internet, using communication tools such as social networking, downloading applications, using e-mail, online games, and accessing potentially dangerous sites.

In short, the main objective of the course is to help participants understand clearly the importance of online security, learning to recognize potential threats and impacts as well as adopting good browsing practices.

Vulnerability to malware attacks, as well as identity theft, can be considerably reduced when educated users about these risks.
