Cyber safety event

FORT BEND ISD (Covering Fort Bend News) – The Fort Bend ISD ISD Police Department has partnered with Crime Stoppers and four other local school district police departments to host the first city-wide, Cyber Safety Outreach Day on Oct. 24. October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and Cyber Safety Outreach Day will educate the community on important safety precautions and potential online dangers that children are exposed to in today’s society.

At the event, Crime Stoppers of Houston and local law enforcement will cover cyber safety trends, potential dangers such as predatory activity and inappropriate exposures, popular apps and games, safety settings/restrictions, recommended monitoring tools, and laws as they relate to cyber safety.

The goal of the event is to empower parents, guardians, family and community members with awareness of cybersecurity and ensure that they have the knowledge and resources to be safe and secure online.

The event will be Thursday, Oct. 24, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. and held in four locations around the Houston area: Deer Park, Katy, The Woodlands and Fort Bend. The Fort Bend ISD event will be held at the Chapel at Sugar Creek Church, 13213 Southwest Freeway in Sugar Land.
