The COVID-19 pandemic caught the world by surprise and businesses around the globe had to adapt to alternative operational models including the education sector. As young students spent an unprecedented amount of time online, it became apparent and important to understand that this may be their first time using devices for professional purposes. Now with schools trying to get back to face to face, the lure of constant connectivity that engulfed children for the last 16 months can lead children to venture beyond their class screens, exposing them to dangers they are not aware of. With ransomware attacks and cyber-attacks looming over companies and governments globally, it is imperative that adults everywhere take heed and bring about changes to their homes and workspaces to pave way for the safety of children everywhere.
