KNOWLEDGEFLOW Canada's trusted source for cybersafety education Cybersafety Foundation

How does cybersafety benefit communities and organizations?

Our connected society enables us to reach information and communicate with each other around the world. Our connections with people and with businesses made possible with technologies have in many ways never been stronger. Unfortunately the technologies that make our lives better also expose us to risks and harm.

KnowledgeFlow CyberSafety Foundation, a not for profit foundation, that works with businesses and education institutions, as well as adults, youth and children to educate about cybersafety issues, how to navigate the online world in the safest way possible and what to do if a problem arises.

KnowledgeFlow CyberSafety Foundation does this through working with businesses (including our certification programs), working with school boards and schools (including becoming a school leader) and, of course, working directly with our communities through outreach and education programs.

If you want to know more about KnowledgeFlow CyberSafety Foundation’s certification and leadership programs, or about our community outreach programs, please contact us at info@knowledgeflow.ca.

Our Mission

Since 2010, KnowledgeFlow has focused exclusively on bringing cybersafety into the spotlight, introducing solutions and providing education that enables communities to take a stand against online abuses. We believe young people must have a sense of entitlement about the Internet. That’s right. It is imperative for everyone to take ownership of their online activity if we are going to eliminate cyberbullying, privacy abuses, trolling and cyberharassment in schools and in the workplace.

Our Cybersafety Policy

In today’s fully connected society, we enjoy combining the real world with the virtual to augment not just reality, but perception itself. We augment our offline world with digital perception, we interact with home appliances from exotic locations and we have a reasonable expectation of privacy and online safety.

Unfortunately, this new frontier is being abused, victimizing not only our virtual reality, but threatening us in the real world. When our loved ones are intimidated by faceless attackers and humiliated by corrupting the fragile fabric of the online world, we rely on cybersafety to regain control and protect our families.

Our strictest rule is also our simplest: we have a zero-tolerance policy on cyberbullying, online victimization, privacy breaches against minors, cyberfraud against seniors and other malicious activity facilitated by abuse of technology. We love technology and hate to see parents feel forced to keep their kids away from it, seniors afraid to answer the telephone and communities victimized by cybercreeps.

Special Initiatives

Cybersafety by Design (CbD)

KnowledgeFlow - Canada's Cybersafety Foundation

Did you know:
The International Day for Protection of Children is observed in many countries as Children's Day on 1 June since 1950. It was established by the Women's International Democratic Federation on its congress in Moscow (4 November 1949).[citation needed] Major global variants include a Universal Children's Holiday on 20 November, by United Nations recommendation.[7]

Even though Children's Day is celebrated globally by most of the countries in the world (almost 50) on 1 June, Universal Children's Day takes place annually on 20 November.[8] First proclaimed by the United Kingdom in 1954, it was established to encourage all countries to institute a day, firstly to promote mutual exchange and understanding among children and secondly to initiate action to benefit and promote the welfare of the world's children.
