The KnowledgeWise program is a cybersafety training initiative designed by and for seniors. The volunteer training squad undergoes extensive cybersafety training by industry experts. The volunteers then deliver the training to their peers – all current public health recommendations are followed to ensure the safety of our volunteers and trainees.
The cybersafety training content and methodology is customized to meet the specific needs of a senior audience. Auditory, visual and physical requirements are taken into consideration based on the input and experience of our volunteers.
More seniors are turning to technology, rely on devices and programs to communicate with family and friends and to navigate life during the pandemic, for everything from grocery shopping to doctor’s appointments. Seniors need to feel secure in their knowledge of how to evaluate the safety of a device/application and to recognize fraud attempts in various forms.
