Why Cyber Hero?…
Due to advancements in technology together with the ease of accessibility of digital devices along with cheaper, quicker WiFi children and young people now have the opportunity to spend more time online and from a younger age. Although the internet can be a place of learning and development it can also be a place where children can be vulnerable and have the opportunity to access information that we could usually protect them from offline.
Our Mission is to help protect children online and to assist schools, parents and guardians to keep children e-safe whilst widening their own e-safety knowledge.
We want to safeguard children online and make them aware of the potential online risks they can face. We want to help children understand that it can be difficult to distinguish who they are interacting with online and enable them to comprehend that they can say ‘no’ and not feel coerced into doing something they do not want to do.

Parents Cyber Safety Course
Using information, hints and tips to keep young people e-safe at home, we have put together a Cyber Security course for parents to take free of charge (with an optional donation to our company at the end).
We have spent countless hours researching about digital issues that young people face online. Doing this has allowed us to ensure we create a course that educates you of some cyber issues that your child may be facing online.
Our biggest aim is to ensure every parent is able to have access to resources that will help their child, no matter what their circumstances are.
Please note that this course is not suitable to be viewed, heard or participated in by anyone under the age of 16. There are also trigger warnings including suicide.
