Educating kids about basic cybersecurity concepts.
Training our future generations on how to identify the great cyber threat and protect themselves from potential harm.
Educating kids about basic cybersecurity concepts.
In these modern times of digital growth, where there is an overwhelming presence of online activity in our daily lives, there is very little digital literacy regarding cybersecurity. With the ever increasing number of cyber hazards, there is a dire need for educating our young generation so they have a safe online experience.
As a parent, you know how daunting it is to explain cybersecurity to young children. Children lack a basic understanding of how the internet operates and how the internet can be dangerous. Fortunately, there are many great resources available, in the form of grade-based lessons, on our platform for both kids and parents.
Each grade contains a set of topics that are carefully designed for defined age groups. We start from a very basic understanding of cybersecurity, giving a general overview of the types of attacks that one can face during their online interactions.
With each module tailored to a specific age group, we gradually extend and reach the advanced levels where our users are well informed of the current threats and know how to prevent themselves.
Tools to help teach children about online safety and security in a fun and engaging way.
In this new media age, we realize just how important it is to keep families safe and secure. It is often possible to forget basic tactics with all the fun stuff online that can keep us safe. Even adults with little technological abilities are able to learn simple technologies, such as how to create and use safe passwords, back-up data, the knowledge of and the use of privacy, and more.
Safety is the most important information to teach your child before they begin accessing the Internet. As something else, the Internet poses threats and children are more likely to face them because they are not prepared. It is vital that you and your children are aware of internet security, so you can prevent any annoyance and difficulties that may arise.
HackersJack is a platform that provides the children with the awareness to be safe and more digital.
HackersJack offers lessons targeted at children of different ages and tailored for all, irrespective of their level of experience. Each module teaches a series of terms as well as a range of activities.
Educating kids to use secure passwords everywhere and not sharing those passwords with anyone.
Much like when you instruct your child not to reveal personal information (e.g., full name, location, contact number, school at which they are attending, etc.), you can teach them to not expose their passwords or login information. It could be better for you, based upon their age, to access their accounts while they use the Internet, but you may also tell them not to share their details.
Our mission is to make it fun and memorable to learn about privacy for kids. We offer children a sense of password protection, through which children will appreciate the value of passwords. Our interactive lessons gradually teach the kids from beginner level to advanced; where kids will learn the various concepts about password security including the basic definition of password with daily life examples, how to construct strong and unique passwords, the common mistakes people make when constructing passwords, and eventually advanced concepts related to this area.
Teaching kids about password strength and creating hard-to-guess passwords.
It is important to teach your child how to prevent typical internet security errors. In the online world, mistakes can happen at any age, but children should be conscious of how to avoid them. If a password is not strong, it is easy to guess.
There are countless examples of data leaks and hacks that have achieved alarming levels in recent years due to weaker passwords. Online security is critical at any level today.
When using the Internet, you can make a password. It is simple to remember, but this can pose a challenge to your online protection because of quick memory retrieval. In order to safeguard yourself and your files, you'll want to use long, powerful, and different passwords while keeping them simple for you to remember.
Though most websites are safe, there are a few things you should know to remain secure. Strengthening passwords is the best way to protect sensitive information from hackers.
HackersJack teaches kids how critical it is to have strong passwords. Following our lessons, you can boost your online security by using strong and secure passwords.
Kids will learn how to stay protected and not download or install anything without asking permission.
Just like a biological virus, a computer virus is a program that can replicate itself during the execution. Software viruses are also run as part of other applications. Biological viruses often function in this manner, since they are copied as part of other organisms. That's how the computer virus received its reputation. In addition to copying itself, a computer virus can often execute instructions that inflict damage. Software viruses impact protection for this purpose.
Quite commonly, the word is often used for other forms of malware, such as Trojan horses and worms. Even if this is incorrect, it can be challenging to know the difference between various forms of malware; they sometimes exist together, and only a specialist will tell them apart. These services often fall under more than one group. Computer viruses are produced for a purpose, often they are created to transmit political messages, sometimes they are often created to access certain system data.
It is the need of the hour to educate our children about the latest forms of viruses, especially in these modern times where there lies a threat everywhere in cyberspace, that can potentially damage your computer or even steal your money from your bank account. Keeping this intuition in mind, HackersJack is here to offer your kid every kind of information and knowledge they need to equip themselves with powerful tools to establish their online defense against every potential threat that could harm their online safety.
Teaching kids to only visit trusted websites and to protect them from malicious websites and malware.
Malware, short for malicious software, is any computer program that may be installed on a device without the owner's permission. There are various forms of malware that can damage machines, such as viruses and Trojan horses. These programs can extract passwords, erase data, gather personal details, or even stop a device from running. Software protection or anti-malware program is typically effective at preventing malware from installing on its own. If the protection program is not installed, the malware will get to the device. Getting rid of malware can be challenging, even though you use programs built to uninstall it.
Education is a great method for reducing the threats associated with networking in terms of malware protection. Security software is always a smart choice, but Internet users can't secure it against everything. Learning about hazards that you might encounter online can shield your child from such security threats, but touch, besides knowledge, is the key to safeguarding them.
All the knowledge modules that we offer at HackersJack have been carefully designed to integrate the learning psychology of children with the advanced knowledge on the latest form of malware, hovering around the corner all around the digital world. Kids will learn everything related to malware, from the very basic definition of malware to advanced anti-malware tools to protect themselves from potential threats.
Educating children to recognize the common signs of phishing scams and encourage them to be suspicious when reading emails and opening attachments.
Phishing attacks are a form of cybercrime that includes defrauding users in order to gain sensitive information. Cybercriminals pose as reputable businesses or organizations to acquire information from the user.
Phishing scams include delivering emails or messages disguised as official resources. They may look like they come from a reputable vendor or a law enforcement agency, but they actually contain malware. These emails are deliberately intended to trap the victim into responding by opening malicious links or infected files through the tactics of fear or intimidation. When an individual opens it, the malicious malware will be transferred to their device, and the cybercriminal will be on your machine.
Phishing is the tool of preference of cybercriminals to infect users' devices. Cybercriminals utilize social engineering to manipulate their victims into releasing malware files on their devices, opening a portal to an infected website, or submitting their private data to criminals.
HackersJack is fraught with strategically designed lessons that progressively teach children every aspect of phishing. Our vast knowledge base contains every basic to advanced concept such as the meaning of phishing, different types of phishing, how to identify an attacker, social engineering, anti-phishing, etc.
Being careful about sharing personal information like home address or what school they go to.
As far as Internet security is concerned, education is a perfect tool to reduce the dangers involved with networking. Protection software is also still an intelligent option, but Internet users cannot defend themselves from every threat that lies in cyberspace. Learning about the dangers you could be facing online will protect your child from becoming the target of certain safety attacks, but contact is the secret to safeguarding them, apart from education.
In general, you have a greater chance of protecting your kid if they know they can chat with you about issues online without getting into trouble. The safest way to keep your child safe, not just online, but in every field of life, is with an education along with contact.
Teaching kids about Internet Security can be easy, but first of all, you need to know about some of your network's security problems and some of the most important things to discuss when teaching your kids about the internet.
Teaching kids to never share any information with people they don't know.
Every child should be aware of how to be secure online. There are technical wonders in the modern digital era that also present all kinds of cyber challenges. Every child is taught simple physical protection and security, including not talking to strangers or fastening seat belts while driving. The biggest issue that parents should remember is educating their children on how to avoid/deal with cyber predators and popular malware. The online community may be a site of offensive actions and material, where children can feel anonymous. There are bullies, criminals, hackers, and scammers that could pose a danger to your baby. These factors can make it difficult for parents to direct their children to communicate with others by technology.
Providing this valuable advice on cyber protection and privacy starts by learning about it and promoting secure and smart choices about the online operation. With HackersJack, you can explore modern methods and best practices that apply to keep your children safe online. We teach children about strengthening user passwords, utilizing anti-malware tools, tackling cyberbullying, protecting against online scams, prevention from cyber grooming, and rules of using social media.
Encourages children to be transparent about their online activities and tell their parents if they see anything online that makes them uncomfortable.
Above all, you should keep your child in the open line of communication and be careful what they download and see online. They are more likely to be safe notifying you if anything goes wrong if you keep this transparent contact chain between you and your kids. Not everybody will monitor their child every second on the internet and parental control services, although it might be necessary for them to find avenues around them based on the age of the child. And if you have already placed it together and it runs really smoothly and well, allow your children to raise concerns about internet access. That is why having communication lines open is important for developing a good and trustworthy relationship between you and your kids.
When steps are taken, the Internet will offer a secure "virtual" space to discover new benefits. HackersJack is fully furnished with adequate resources that not only educate children about the technical jargon of the online world but also teach your kids how to be most effective in communications with their parents in these digitally threatful times. We also help parents discover contemporary practices that would nourish safe and healthy communication in the family.
Guiding kids on how to and what is an ideal time to spend on online activities be it youtube videos, playing games or social media communication.
Screens are becoming a feature of everyday life that would remain unavoidable. A question should be posed that kids are restricted from engaging with one another. Parents find it challenging to regulate their child's proximity to screens.
Many parents are disappointed because their children spend a lot of time on television. It is beneficial for a child's growth, such as physical, emotional, and educational. Anyway, establishing a balance is something that should be achieved. Children must be monitored and discouraged from exploring the internet on their own since they are too young to recognize the possible dangers of online activities. For good and conscientious parents, they can never allow their children's mind to be overwhelmed by these deceptive games.
These are difficult times to raise kids. Today's parents aren't as knowledgeable about technology and simply have to work extra hard to help their children understand this topic. The internet has brought tremendous danger to your child. With our strong and effective lessons, we help you control your child's screen time by teaching them cyberspace manners and reduce the health and mental risks associated with excessive use of devices.
Many social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have an age minimum of 13 years old, how to educate kids on selecting the right social media pages.
In the ever-changing social network world, we are focusing on, planning, and discussing too many choices for celebrating, sharing, and seeking help for children. Social networking platforms are a major favorite for children who can remain in contact with peers via talk and encounter new people with shared interests and post images and videos.
Social networks are used to show their imagination, and they are a good environment for young people. As a parent, you will do a lot to guarantee that the experience of your children is healthy and enjoyable.
In order to enable your teens to build instruments to make social media function and handle the risks and benefits it may offer, we have built a consulting centre that provides guidance for you to choose the right social network for your kid where they can maintain their social media presence with utmost manners and safety.
Guiding kids on what signs to look for when downloading certain app. Do not download an app just because its free to download.
Application security is a mechanism for designing, integrating, and checking security functionality inside the software to protect security vulnerabilities against threats such as unwanted access and alteration.
Application security is critical since today's apps are mostly accessible over multiple networks and linked to the cloud, growing vulnerabilities to security attacks and breaches. There is growing pressure and motivation not only to maintain protection at the level of the network but also inside apps themselves. One explanation for this is that hackers are going after applications with attacks more now than in the past. System protection monitoring may expose bugs at the application level, helping to deter certain attacks.
In this digital age, the most valuable thing is 'your data'. So it requires to be protected more than anything else as well. Nowadays almost every kid downloads and uses much different gaming and social media applications on mobile devices but they are unaware of the risks that come with these applications. Most of these applications lack the implementation of basic security standards. We repeatedly emphasize in our knowledge modules the importance of data security and how data security is dependent on the security of the application that uses your data for processing. As a parent, you will be able to learn what is application security, vulnerabilities that application pose to your data, and how to check whether the applications that your children are using is secure enough to use or not.
Educating parents on how to identify if kids are being groomed.
In today's interconnected world, with nearly everybody having access to the internet, where everyone can communicate with anyone under a curtain of privacy, the world poses a far greater chance of anyone grooming our children without us even recognizing it. Cyber grooming is a type of child grooming where abusers approach children digitally, establish virtual connections with them, build trust, and learn the best way to obtain access to them in the real world.
Connecting to children online may be convenient for predators. Some chose to enter a kid-friendly chat room and claim to be a child while others play an online game with them where the predator may interact privately with the child. Many abusers can entice a child to trust them with presents and assurances while still utilizing a vocabulary that normalizes sexual language and acts.
In certain instances, the infant may not inform the parent that these kinds of acts are taking place for fear of being disbelieved or disciplined. In such situations, the kid will believe like their predator is a friend of theirs and will not try to get them into trouble. As a consequence, most cases of cyber grooming go unnoticed, particularly by busy parents who don't take the time to monitor what their child is doing online.
Apart from tracking their online activities, it is equally important to have open communication with your children. A child should feel at ease telling you about everything going on in their lives, including the online world and social media. If you are concerned about your children getting attacked by online predators and cyber groomers, then you do not have to worry because you have landed in the right place. HackersJack educates your child about each and everything related to cyber grooming that they need to know in order to strengthen their self-defense against these internet ills. Through the grades, kids will gradually learn about cyber grooming and its types, identification of online predators, common tactics used by the predators, how to strengthen their guard against cyber grooming, and much more.
Providing knowledge on internet scams, how and when someone can scam you by befriending on the internet.
The first step to safeguarding your children from cyber fraud is to learn about the kinds of scams circulating across the Internet. Many forms of Internet scams involve fake Wi-Fi hotspots; social networking and email notifications suggesting that you have earned an expensive prize or maybe competing to win an expensive prize, and bogus pop-ups warning about alleged viruses and malware. This latter scam also appears like genuine antivirus applications, but what you're doing to "fix" your machine is simply infecting it with a virus.
Fake charities are seeking to make the best of your kindness and sympathy towards those in need. Scammers can take the money by acting as a legitimate charity. Not only can these schemes cost you money, they often divert much-needed donations away from reputable organizations and causes. Scammers will even prey on the feelings by pretending to support children who are sick. You can be confronted by people raising money on the street or at your front door. Scammers may even set up false websites that look close to those run by actual charities. Scammers can call or contact you asking for a donation.
In these uneven times, where it is very difficult to trust anyone on the internet, it is even harder to protect yourself from online scams and cyber frauds. Our wide-ranging knowledge modules help you discover modern methods to protect yourself from online scams. We teach your child everything regarding online scams from the very basic definition to common methods used by scammers to steal your money. Your kid will learn how to safeguard your funds and make secure payments when buying something online.
Educating children on how once you put a post or image on social media its there forever. It can come back and haunt you in years to come.
Today, parents encounter problems that past generations might never have dreamed about. This makes it all the more challenging to steer children away from the online magnetic pull.
While social media activism brings an increased awareness about societal issues, questions remain as to whether this awareness is translating into real change. Some argue that social sharing has encouraged people to use computers and mobile phones to express their concerns on social issues without actually having to engage actively with campaigns in real life. Their support is limited to pressing the 'Like' button or sharing content.
This passivity is a fairly human tendency as individuals would prefer not to have to face accountability. When people are presented with the option of 'loving' a social cause, they use it to opt out of actually committing time and money to a charitable cause. On the other side, they are more willing to give practical help by providing a financial donation if individuals are able to express support in private.
One of the consequences of social networking is to allow people to develop and cherish "social media friendships" over real friendships. The word 'friend' used in social networking is a thin shadow of conventional friendship. True friends really meet each other, connect face to face, and have a personal relationship. Our knowledge base is designed with the intuition of inculcating children's minds with positive and appropriate online behavior. We encourage them to be careful about their digital footprint, especially about what they post, share, and watch on social media. HackersJack contains complete and up-to-date information about how to increase the value of your child's online presence to the highest level.
What are the ideal manners of social media engagement for kids.
It is possible that your child will have access to social media even before they were eligible to use these services (often 13+). You need to be conscious of whether they are using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or email to monitor their social media activities. Another crucial step for you to take is to teach them not to share any sensitive details over the Internet. It is possible for children to become victims of online abusers, so it's safer to develop parental controls if you can't track them while they use social media and communicating with others. Parental controls will prohibit your child from visiting pages that are harmful and inappropriate for them by blocking particular URLs and keywords, and there are also applications available to ensure your child's online and social media security on mobile devices.
HackersJack is a platform that is stuffed with all the wonderful resources where you can educate yourself and your children about the best practices and effective rules for using social media to make your child's social media experience safe and fruitful.
Teaching kids what is cyber bullying? How to identify, report and tackling it. How to support kids while addressing cyber bullying.
We are all aware of the popular risks associated with hackers and viruses on the internet, however, there is one other thing that children must be particularly aware of before they access the internet, "cyberbullying". Cyberbullying typically takes place among teens however, it may happen at any age. Internet is a network of billions of users and there are many users who love using it as a platform to use it for inappropriate purposes. Much as in the offline world, nefarious characters are also online. Let your child realize that these kinds of individuals are online, too, and much as they shouldn't trust strangers offline, they shouldn't be online either. Avoiding the sharing of personal details can benefit others, in particular when it comes to cyberbullying since the better the fewer details the child gets online. Your role as a parent is to track your online accounts to make sure they don't encounter cyberbullying.
We regard your children like ours and we believe that no child should be ill-treated by anyone. That is the reason, after working nights and days, we have designed comprehensive lessons that progressively train kids on cyberbullying and everything related to this concept. At the end of this journey that your child will have with us, they would have learned everything necessary for being a good and sophisticated individual in the online world. HackersJack will strengthen your child's inner abilities to tackle and defend against cyberbullying and online harassment.

How to monitor your kid's online activity log. Make sure kids are only visiting age appropriate kid's safe sites.
Growing and protecting children has become even more complicated with the introduction of ever-present high-speed Internet connectivity. Kids are not necessarily the strongest judges on what is best for them. Of course, that's true for both of us, but parents always need to take control of their children before they leave home (or stop asking for money). Internet threats include fraud, porn, viruses, predators, bullying, and so on.
With too much knowledge and technologies at the tip of the children's fingertips, parents may feel overwhelmed attempting to maintain track of their children's online operations. With the internet and various social networking applications, keeping kids healthy and understanding what they're looking at online is an increasing issue.
Parental Monitoring Applications are becoming increasingly popular and advanced in helping parents maintain track of their children's digital presence.
