Are you worried about your child's digital safety-but don't know where to begin?

The internet is the driving force in today's society and a huge part of our daily lives. Most children use the internet from the moment they wake up till the moment they fall asleep.

More importantly, most children (and many adults!) don't know they need protection while surfing the web …. until it's too late.

Cyberama brings serious fun to complex computer science and cybersecurity subjects, like:

  • Password Strength
  • Social Engineering
  • Malware
  • Phishing
  • Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
  • Internet Security
  • Cyberbullying

Cyberama is designed to be your biggest tool in the defense against cyber threats, big and small! This middle grade adventure book is ideal for beginner internet users.
