Cyber-security lessons for kids

2017-07-25 06:01

Kaspersky Lab in partnership with Active Education will be activating its first lab in Claremont on Thursday 3 August at 11:30.

As part of the launch, a series of interactive sessions with children between the ages of seven and 13 will be held in various schools to raise awareness about cyber-security across Cape Town.

The aim is to teach children about the dangers of the online world, and to equip them with the knowledge and tools they need to be responsible online.

Sessions will be about creating a safe space to discuss and educate children in a fun and engaging way, ensuring that the message is delivered in a memorable ­manner.

Global experts Konstantin Ignatev, the acting head of content analysis and research, and Vladislav Tushkanov, a spam analyst at Kaspersky Lab, will support this campaign and provide key insights into the dangers the children in South Africa face and how these can be prevented.
