Cybersecurity Summit for Kids
This year marks the first time that Deutsche Telekom is hosting the “Cyber Security Summit for Kids”. The event is specifically tailored to children and takes place in Bonn one day after the Cyber Security Summit. The company wants to do its part to ensure that children in grades four to six develop awareness for the opportunities and risks of consuming media. The children should leave the summit with the knowledge they need to act safely and responsibly in the world of modern communication technology and new communication services.
