In our modern world, teaching kids about cybersecurity should be on any parent’s radar to ensure eSafety in this digital world.
Depending on how old your children are, the internet can be a dangerous place because as they get older they wander beyond the trusted apps you’ve set them up with. Therefore, it’s important to proactively talk to your children about the internet and its dangers. Furthermore, as children get older, their understanding of the internet, hackers, and cybersecurity will be greatly improved if parents are able to discuss these big concepts with their kids.
