1 min read

TLDR: About 72% of children globally have encountered at least one type of cyber threat online, but only 40% of parents are aware of these incidents, according to a report from the Global Cybersecurity Forum. With more children becoming active online at an earlier age, it is crucial to prioritize cybersecurity education to ensure their safety. Measures to protect children from cyber threats include learning cybersecurity through play, teaching ethics alongside cybersecurity principles, demystifying the hacker figure, incorporating cybersecurity into the educational curriculum, and teaching children how to create secure networks. By providing children with cybersecurity education, they can learn how to identify and respond to threats, creating a safer online environment and encouraging responsible use of technology.
