Cybersecurity for Parents & Guardians


Nobody has more to gain from our increasingly online world than our youth. The internet is an extraordinary tool for education and communication, and today’s children and youth will grow up with access to more knowledge than any generation before. 

Accompanying these extraordinary benefits are real risks associated with the Internet – including cyberbullying, malware, misinformation or inappropriate content. While these risks are important, there are common-sense strategies, outlined in this guide, that parents and guardians can use to keep children safe.

Together with Rogers Communications, the Catalyst is pleased to launch the Parents’ & Guardians’ Guide to Cybersecurity. We hope it will be a helpful tool for parents and guardians as they navigate those conversations, moments and lessons around online safety–so that children and youth understand the importance of safety and security, as they reap the benefits of our digital world.
