BOTHELL, Wash., Dec. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Anyone can fall for a cyber scam, but being willing to talk about it is another matter. Take an illuminating and light-hearted look at modern cybercrime through our parent's eyes with the new web series Mom Don't Click That from MediaPRO, a leading provider of security and privacy training solutions. The series launches with a collection of three episodes featuring cybersecurity experts talking with their parents about scams they have fallen victim to in the past.
With the help of an affable, easy-going host, Mom Don't Click That highlights the scams that got the best of each parent interviewed, what exactly happened, and tips for how viewers can learn from each experience. Though several guests had to learn the hard way, it is not all horror stories. The series also celebrates outsmarting a few bad guys, too.
"Making a human-to-human connection is vital for any educational experience, especially for something that can be as scary and esoteric as cybersecurity," MediaPRO Chief Strategist Lisa Plaggemier said. "Mom Don't Click That presents our parents' real-world stories in way that's empathic and removes the stigma. Plus, these folks are just downright adorable. We can get really frustrated with our own parents and their technical challenges, but other people's parents are super cute."
Mom Don't Click That humanizes the problem of cyber scams. The easy-to-consume web series is funny, diverse, and provides actionable advice for viewers who have likely experienced, or will at some point experience, the trials and tribulations of online scammers.
