October is National Cyber Security Month and that’s why the Suisun City Police Department is encouraging parents to lead the way with easy-to-learn life lessons for online safety and privacy.
Learning good cybersecurity practices can also help set a strong foundation for a career in the industry, the department posted on social media. With family members using the internet to engage in social media, adjust the home thermostat or shop for the latest connected toy, it is vital to make certain that the entire household ‒ including children – learn to use the internet safely and responsibly and that networks and mobile devices are secure.
The United States Department of Homeland Security, www.dhs.gov/stopthinkconnect-toolkit, offers several tips on how to maintain cyber security.
