The world wide web is a very big place, and one where young people spend a lot of their time these days. It’s full of fun, entertaining, and educational things for them to see and do, but of course it also has its share of dangers – malware, the potential for cyberbullying, adults with less-than-honourable intentions, and more that can potentially come about through unsupervised usage.
Kaspersky Lab knows this, and has launched a campaign starring their cute cybersecurity mascot, Midori Kuma, that champions awareness in parents about online security for their kids.
Here’s a quick video they put together highlighting why parents should be concerned about their kids’ online activities:
The video raises a number of good points, and also points parents towards a landing page that’s all about the various resources Kaspersky Lab has developed to make parents aware of what the realities are, and what they can do.
In short, Kaspersky recommends doing three things:
- Educate children about safety online
- Limit time on devices
- Use a parental control app
There’s plenty more information on the page, so definitely head on over there to delve a little deeper. You can even sign up to receive an ebook that lays all of the information out in an easy-to-read fashion.
