The growing commitment in the cybersecurity sector has pushed Kaspersky to embark on a new path aimed at raising awareness among young internet users of the risks associated with the digital world. The awareness that safety education must start from childhood is the basis of the initiative, which aims to give elementary school students informative lessons suitable for their understanding. Through an educational approach designed to attract children's attention, the aim is to provide them with the tools necessary to surf the web more safely.

Interactive tools and the adoption of metaphors

The educational strategy adopted is based on the use of captivating stories and metaphors, capable of translating technical concepts into narratives accessible to children. This method makes it easier to remember security practices and identify various cyber threats. The collection of interactive tools made available by Kaspersky includes, among other things, games, quizzes and animations, which aim to make learning not only useful but also fun. Through these resources, little ones can familiarize themselves with the basics of online safety in a controlled environment.

Teacher training and teaching material

A fundamental aspect of the initiative is the training of teachers, who are supported with specific teaching materials to conduct the lessons. Kaspersky releases guides and manuals that help prepare teachers to effectively convey the principles of cybersecurity. This ensures that the message is delivered appropriately and that students receive correct, up-to-date information. The preparation of educators is crucial to ensure that learners can acquire a solid understanding of online risks.

Future impact and collective responsibility

Kaspersky's project takes place in a long-term horizon, aiming to develop a generation of informed and aware internet users. Educating children about cybersecurity practices from an early age is an investment in the future of digital society. The responsibility to create a safe online environment falls on all parties, including internet service providers, parents and educational institutions. With this initiative, Kaspersky confirms its commitment to promoting a culture of cybersecurity, contributing to broader collective awareness.
