In a rapidly changing digital world parents are doing whatever it takes to make sure their children don’t fall for phishing scams to reminding them to never reveal personal information online.

Some kids are web savvy but others may need a helping hand.

That’s why Baltimore Cyber Summit is on a mission to strengthen students’ grades 7- 12 cyber IQ, which these organizers hope will inspire students to pursue careers in technology.

Cyber professionals from across Maryland met children and parents on Saturday at Mount Pleasant Grand Fellowship for an all-day event that covered topics such as identity theft, ransomware, Internet best practices and more.

Organizers aim is to have a healthier cyber community and give parents the best tools to help protect their children.
