As students are large consumers of the internet, having them understand how to combat cyber threats and maintain proper cyber hygiene is crucial. We can all agree that the internet is a large part of every student’s life, whether it comes to completing assignments or browsing the web. If mature, tech-savvy adults can fall for common online scams, we need to ensure that children’s lack of experience will be protected through cybersecurity education at a young age.
Through Cyberweek.org programs, students from K-12 will learn how to have a secure cyber presence and allow teachers to be open about online safety with their students. Not to mention, they are provided with extensive career exploration through Q&A panels, mentorships, and gain insights on future internship opportunities. Cybersecurity is a focus that offers crucial information to students regardless of the career path they choose in the future. Cyber hygiene and privacy lessons, such as only speaking to those they know, having limited information be public, and using the internet for appropriate uses, can be applied to any student’s technology usage.
Children have the brightest minds and are full of curiosity towards various subjects, technology included. These students are the backbone of our future innovation. They must be equipped with cybersecurity skills at a young age to bring this knowledge to the workforce and allow their families, communities, and country to be safe from threats.
Meet the Team.
