IET India’s advisory to parents to safeguard their children from cyber threats in times of a pandemic
Due to COVID-19, schools and colleges are non-operational across the globe. Although there is no immediate disruption to education and teaching, learning has almost entirely moved from physical classrooms to online classes. This presents an added responsibility for parents to keep their children safe from cybercriminals who could be trying to leverage this emergency and luring internet users to click on malicious links and files.
The IET’s Cybersecurity Working Group has put together some best practices to be followed to safeguard children from becoming targets of malware and thus, to protect them cyber threats.
