Back to School

Summer is coming to an end, which means it's back to school season, and more than ever before, kids of all ages are using PC's to prepare projects, play games, and connect with classmates. While the Internet is a limitless tool for children to learn and

play, the fact is that kids often lack the knowledge they need on how to stay safe online, making young web surfers one of the most targeted groups by identity thieves and cyber criminals.

With cyber threats at an all-time high, most parents know that it's necessary to discuss and encourage PC safety. But staying secure online, regardless of age and online experience, isn't always easy.

In this issue, we take a look at the practical ways you can keep yourself and your close ones safe online.
