The use of the internet , online gaming, and social media could be one of the biggest threats to our children, their homes, and schools.
Youth Cyber Citizenship
Cybersecurity has become one of the most critical subjects to understand by anyone who access the internet. It is the most important, often the best, defense we have against the relentless daily attacks against our computers, financial data, and work/school data by cybercriminals from all around the world.
Cybercriminals have proven over and over again that their attacks do not discriminate against age, everyone is a target to their malicious acts.
Children and youth are often considered to be a soft target, mainly due to the fact that they have not been trained yet on basic cybersecurity subjects and basic ways to protect themselves and their devices, making them an easy gateway into more valuable home and school devices and networks.
Acknowledging the need to address this subject, Novus Consulting Group developed the Cyber Citizenship Course, an entertaining online training program specifically designed for children and youth between the ages of 15 and 18.
The online course covers the basics and fundamentals of cybersecurity as a subject, then dives into the what to do and not to do while using a laptop or mobile phone, how to recognize cybercriminal activities, safe web surfing and best social media practices, among many other subjects.
