Preparing Our Kids for Digital Immersion

Your children are raised in a digital world, where likes and followers dictate every aspect of their lives. They are definitely more tech savvy than you were at their age. Your kid probably learned to use a smartphone faster than you learned to use your Etch A Sketch or your Windows 2000 computer. Yet, your children are extremely vulnerable and it’s up to you to prepare them for the digital world.

Have you prepared your child for all the dangers lurking on the internet? If not, this is the book for you.

Cyberbullying Crash Course:

Protect Your Kids from Cyberbullies, Cyber Violence, and Digital Peer Pressure

With a few taps on the screen, you can order a month’s worth of laundry detergent on Amazon, find a date on Tinder, or join a heated argument on Reddit. Just as easily, your child could give a phisher your credit card details, share their address with a sexual predator, or fall prey to cyberbullies.

The Internet makes all of this very easy.

You can’t just take away your child’s phone or block certain online activities with parental control apps. It’s easy to find a way around such apps and your parent-child relationship will suffer immensely because the child will know you don’t trust them.

The only way to keep our children safe online is by educating them about cybersecurity, cyberbullying, social media interactions, and online predators.

In this book, you’ll learn:

  • How to talk to your kids about cyberbullying and cybersecurity
  • How to identify phishing emails and mal-ware/mal-apps
  • How to know if your child is being cyberbullied
  • How sexual predators use the internet to lure in their victims

IoT: Why Your Privacy is in Danger, and What to Do About it

IoT is a message from the future. In today’s world, where infinite number of items are listed, sold, and used, a new technology has emerged – the internet of things.

The internet of things is actually quite a simple concept. It is meant to connect everything in the entire world to the internet. That means that every car driven will be monitored. Every animal in the planet will be recorded. Every item you use will be tracked.

While this may sound like a sci-fi movie, there are important benefits to using this technology (including fighting global warming, dealing with water crises, and even the elimination of diseases), and the world is heading in this direction whether we like it or not.

In IoT, Bjorn Beam shows you exactly how the world is taking advantage of this futuristic technology, how you can use it as well, and how you can protect your private data in a world where everything is monitored and followed.
