Child Internet Safety Day, Saturday 21st July 2018

digikids in partnership with Strathmore University and (ISC)2 Kenya Chapter will hold this term’s Child Internet Safety Day on Saturday 21st July, 2018.

This is a FREE event where parents will be engaged on various ways and tools to keep their kids Safe and Secure Online.Children are great at online games, but they lose at online safety. Parents, guardians and other care-givers should have the ability to teach children to protect themselves from online predators that want to take advantage of the kids’ curiosity and eagerness to make friends.

On this Child Internet Safety Day, we will give parents the tools, as caregivers, to protect their children. We will cover hot topics such as cyber-bullying, social media, sexting, online gaming, mobile phone security, computer protection, and much more!

(ISC)2 Kenya Chapter is a not-for-profit professional association of leaders in the area of computer security and cyber safety.
