For the second year running, KPMG cyber security professionals from 45 countries around the world led classroom sessions aimed at educating young students about the importance of cyber security and internet risk. The sessions were held during October, which is known as International Cyber Security Awareness Month.
This year cyber security professionals from KPMG in Kazakhstan and Central Asia have also taken part in the initiative of KPMG International and held five cyber security workshops for about five hundred schoolchildren in Almaty and Astana.
“I’m very glad that our cyber security group has been able to participate in KPMG’s initiative to hold workshops at Kazakhstan schools. In this digital age, it is very important for teenagers to know about safe on-line behavior. The number of threats in cyberspace is constantly growing, so we need to improve the information literacy among children of all ages. During training sessions,schoolchildren confirmed that they use multiple network services, games, social networks and they actively posed questions on how to protect themselves against hacking, recognize fraud or transfer their data safely,” commented Elena Gerasimenko, Senior Consultant, IT Consulting, KPMG in Kazakhstan and Central Asia.
