Part II: Creating a Kid-Friendly Cybersecurity Culture
CyberLaunch Academy Video Contest
In Part 1 of our interview, Creating a Kid-Friendly Cybersecurity Culture from CISO to CyberLaunch , Jamie and Ben Rees, a father and son duo who share interests in digital pursuits, discussed some of the CyberLaunch Academy programs and promotions in which Ben has participated.
CyberLaunch recently announced, in collaboration with TrendMicro, Plato, PQA Testing, and BSides Fredericton, the launch of their yearly video contest, geared to the 7-17 set. This year’s contest theme is, “If you had a chance to start over and build the Internet, what would you do differently?” The deadline to upload submissions is Aug. 1, 2018.
“If you had a chance to start over and build the Internet, what would you do differently?”
Last year’s contest challenged participants to create a short video to teach fellow children about Internet Safety. Ben and Jamie set to work. The 8-year old son became content creator, producer and entire cast while dad, Jamie, stepped up as the camera person. Ben on Making the Internet a Safer Place to Play gained the Grand Prize for the contest’s General Category.
In Part 2 we discuss last year’s video win as well as what Ben wants to be when he grows up. Watch here:
