The Super Run Atlanta is being hosted by Savvy Cyber Kids, an Atlanta based 501(c)3 non-profit, in recognition of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) 2014.
“I’ve spoken to hundreds of children through McAfee’s Online Safety for Kids program and always leave the presentations amazed at how technologically savvy today’s generation is,” said Fernando Quintero, VP, Americas Channel Sales & Operations at McAfee. “These kids have grown up with technology and social media at the center of their lives, often times leaving their parents completely unaware of what they are doing online. As experts on cybersecurity, it is our industry’s responsibility to teach them how to use the Internet safely and responsibly. My goal is to teach our participants how to keep themselves and their data safe, and to remind them that the actions they take online have real-life repercussions.”
“With The Super Run Atlanta,” said Ben Halpert, Founder and President of Savvy Cyber Kids, “we are bringing the concept of technology and screen-time balance to today’s youngest children. We are excited to launch the third book in the Savvy Cyber Kids at Home series, Adventures Beyond the Screen, at The Super Run Atlanta. None of this would be possible without sponsors like McAfee and Mission Critical Systems.”
Dress up like your favorite super hero and join Savvy Cyber Kids and metro Atlanta families as they celebrate the Adventures Beyond the Screen book launch.
