Abstract

Older users are rapidly adopting internet-enabled devices, yet are often targeted by cyberattackers with possible disastrous consequences. We describe the CyberGuardians initiative where we train older members of the community to be knowledgeable about cybersecurity so they can spread the information to peers and help protect their communities from cyber harms. Specifically, we focus on a case study evaluating two CyberGuardians and their use of training materials to inform peers in their community about cybersecurity. We discuss the importance of flexible training materials that can be adapted by CyberGuardians for sharing with peers.
