“This initiative is truly a big deal because we want our young people to know that not only do they matter, but they have protection and support of the cyber safety community”
Rob Theriot, Director of Security Services for TraceSecurity and sponsor of Cyber Safety Day NOLA.
“Parents need to go home and check the devices their kids are using and ask themselves whether or not their kids have the education to safely use it.”

“Kids are doing things like Snapchat and Facebook. So, they need to be safe because there is a lot of people preying on kids and they need the knowledge to protect themselves”
