Cybersecurity 101

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

Do your students know the history of the Internet?

The Internet was originally designed to connect large computers at universities, businesses and governments. Growth exploded once personal computers became common in the 1980s. Connecting to the Internet leaves computers vulnerable, however. People can use computers to delete data, spread viruses or even steal someone’s identity. The good news is that there are several ways your students can stay safe online.

In this video from NOVA Cybersecurity Lab, your class learns how to protect information by trying coding, password cracking and spotting email scams. As pervasive as mobile/electronic devices are today, it’s more important than ever for kids to understand how to protect themselves and their personal information online.
