Master the art of how to use virtual learning platforms and social networks like WhatsApp safely
Are you too secure to be hacked? As schools remain closed and embrace digital learning, hackers are leveraging the panic and confusion to transmit malware and break into computer networks. If you (parent) or any of your children have Internet access or use social networks like WhatsApp, Email, Skype, etc, you are vulnerable to cyber-attacks if you connect through the same network!
Cybercrime is like rape; many victims never report to the Police due to the intrusive nature. The best strategy is to empower your children, your brothers & sisters, and the general public to be secure by practising cyber hygiene. With Internet penetration in Uganda at 50% coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic, the problem is huge.
To this end, the Institute of Forensics & ICT Security in partnership with Radio One is offering free “Children Online Safety Awareness Training” worth Ugx 150,000 free of charge as part of our community investment to promote secure and safe virtual learning.
