Part IV - Keeping Your Money Safe and Secure

Cyber Security for Your Children

Now that we are firmly in the digital age, there are some things that you will need to talk to your children about once they start to go online. This space changes quickly. Here is a list of online safety resources for you and your children.

Connect Safely is a nonprofit organization focused on educating people about safety, privacy, security and digital wellness. They have developed guides from Tik Tok to Roblox to Cyberbullying and everything in between. 

The Parent’s Guide to Cybersecurity is comprehensive. You can view all their guides here. I would highly recommend the Quick Guides to Cybersecurity and Secure Passwords. 

 Get Cyber Safe is a national public awareness campaign created by the Government of Canada to inform Canadians about cybersecurity and the steps to protect themselves online.

Stop Think Connect is a source of information produced by the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency in the United States. It provides resources to both parents and educators.
