The series consists of three 10-15 minute videos, that are available for busy parents to watch at a convenient time.
Hosted by Jo Vaughan Life Education's National Training Manager and Brett Hannath, Senior Director of Marketing, Intel Security, as well as Intel Security's Cybermum Alex Merton-McCann, the resource features key tips from the Life Education school program’s Cybersafety modules bCyberwise and It's Your Call.
Intel Security's Cybermum, Alex Merton-McCann, brings the home experience element into the vodcast, as a busy mum of four boys, she understands what a pivotal role the internet plays in all our lives, and the number of tricky situations parents can face whilst trying to navigate the online world.
"There are so many ways our children are exposed to the internet everyday - it is a wonderful thing – but it can come with risks. Our kids are learning about cybersecurity at school, but it's very hard for busy parents to find the time to do the same. That's why we wanted to create content that helps bring parents up to date with the latest trends so that they can be as prepared as possible."
Jo Vaughan, Life Education National Training Manager comments, "We want to extend our support through the Life Education program to parents, providing them with bite-sized tools to slot into busy lives, explaining why it is important to keep the whole family safe online, with tips from our Cybersafety modules and the latest information from Intel Security's Teens, Tweens and Technology research."
"Since partnering with Life Education in 2012, parenting has changed. Due to new inventions such as drones, fitbits and even wifi Barbie, more parents are concerned about the cybersafety of their children online. It is great to be able to communicate our research directly to the people it effects the most. These vodcasts are a wonderful way to help parents stay on top of the latest cybersecurity issues and make the learning process just that little bit easier," says Brett Hannath, Senior Director Marketing, Intel Security.
The on demand videos will be hosted on the Life Education website and feature information from Intel Security's annual Teens, Tweens and Technology research.
