Virtu defines these smaller sub communities as the elderly who are less familiar with technology, young children navigating the unlimited world of social media, the Indigenous community, individuals with disabilities and the lonely looking for romance and kinship.
Virtu aims to do our part to give back to the diverse people in our communities, and provide tech resources, support networks and understandings to enable greater awareness about cybersecurity and mental health. Let’s create a safer, brighter future for all. That’s Virtu’s commitment.
