The ins and outs of Cybersecurity: A course for parents and children on keeping those trying to get in...out!

The rapid expansion of the internet and social media in everyday life is making privacy and security almost an impossibility and the proliferation of technology and our reliance on it in daily life increases the risk factor exponentially. Governments and the largest firms in the world struggle in the fight against malware and cyber attacks and both have armies of the best minds in the business trying to protect them. The general public is woefully ill-equipped in navigating the cyber world and desperately needs at least, basic training and skills. A multi-tiered, 3-hour, interactive seminar pack aimed at developing and increasing awareness of cyber-security. The seminars are designed to help both Parents and Children learn about the cyber security requirements that each of us have, but almost no one understands. Taught at increasingly challenging levels and in parallel rooms, the seminars are designed so that, at each tier, both parents and children are taught to develop skills and understand common methods used to breach accounts, conduct fraudulent payments, mass mis-information campaigns, cyberpsychology, malware infections as well as how vulnerable devices can be. The focal point is the interactive presentation of different cyber security aspects as perceived from different viewpoints and experiences of both parents and children. The seminars then converge into a third hour where both generations are then brought in the same room together to discuss, apply and compare the lessons and techniques taught individually. The sessions will target:
01
BEGINNER

Basic cyber security 101 - Through facts and figures we tackle the basics of viruses, phishing tactics, malware, hacking, password management and more.

02
INTERMEDIATE

We move onto big data ask what data companies are collecting on you. Are smart devices spies? What information should you share? Find the answers and delve deeper.

03
ADVANCED

Trolls, online predators and cyberbullies. What protection is available and how to keep yourself and your loved ones safe and secure.

PROGRAMME AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

The project objective is primarily to help the public navigate the ever-increasing complexity of the cyber world. We envision an imminent exponential growth for cyber security protection and yet there are no dedicated education providers on this topic available to the general public or younger audiences.
Our goal is to educate the public about the various aspects of cyber security as applied in the real life.
Individually, by the end of the course, Children will:

• Have a better understanding of basic cyber security,
• Learn how to behave online
• Learn how to protect themselves and their data,
• Appreciate the impact of their actions online
• Appreciate the value of privacy and data
• Learn how to spot potential trouble, trolls,
• Have fun and inform themselves!

By the end of the course, parents will:

• Learn more about the cyber world their children live in most of the day
• Learn about what tools exist and how to leverage them to protect their families
• Balance online and offline life
• Help their families understand cyber risks
• React quicker to signs of cyber bullying, online predators.
