Educating children in Cyber Security

I am very pleased to have been accepted as a volunteer by ISC2 to present their “Safe and Secure Online” message to local schools (in Fredericton).

Kids don’t tend to get the vital messages regarding Cyber Security from media, both online or traditional, of the tremendous risks they face. And many know more about using social media than their parents and even teachers.

ISC2 in conjunction with Childnet and a number of other organisations have prepared presentations designed to be given in the classroom to kids within the age ranges 7-10 & 11-14. Normally taking one hour, the topics covered include:

  • Cyberbullying
  • Online reputation
  • Malware
  • Password protection
  • Social media
  • Texting

A brochure can be found here that can be distributed to schools, if you would like further details or schedule a presentation , please either contact me or ISC2.
