There is no escaping the fact that we live in and benefit from a connected world. The Internet of Things (IoT) brings a great deal of convenience, information and social interaction to our lives. Like the physical world around us, the connected, virtual, world also poses danger in the form of cyber threats. There are many things to be aware of, and many strategies to use in order to protect yourself and your children. This presentation will offer you cyber safety and security strategies to minimize the risk of falling victim to scams and fraud, malware and dangerous content, or identity theft. Your responsible behavior is the single most effective defense in protecting digital identity and personal information.
These self-help resources, from non-profit and government organizations, can support you in managing your and your child’s “digital footprint.”
