A new youth activity packet designed to help teach children valuable cybersecurity skills has been launched by KnowBe4.

With children spending more time online at increasingly younger ages, education is vital to ensure a safe and secure online experience. According to research from the Child Mind Institute, 53% of parents are concerned about online bullying and 67% of parents are concerned about the content available to their children on the internet. KnowBe4 has created a free resource for parents and caregivers to help cover some of these pressing topics.

The KnowBe4 Children’s Interactive Activity Kit includes the following resources:

  • Bye Bye Bully video
  • Spot the Phish — Children’s Edition
  • Password Zapper Game
  • Security Cat’s Activity Book for Kids packet
  • Children’s Table Top Activity packet


“As a security organisation, it is our duty to impart our knowledge and expertise to help provide our customers and their families with a fun and interactive way to engage their children in online safety and security activities,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4.

“These new materials will help parents and caregivers get the conversation started while equipping their children with the security skills that will benefit and enrich their online experience. Creating a foundation for safe online usage is critical to help children navigate the dangers and challenges of cyberspace.”
