Securing The Kids

  • Lance Spitzner
  • Thursday, November 1st, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Technology is an amazing tool. It allows our kids to access a tremendous amount of information, meet new people, and communicate with friends around the world. In addition, for them to be successful in the 21st century they have to know and understand how to leverage these new tools. However, with all these capabilities come a variety of new risks, risks that as parents you may not understand or even be aware of. In this one hour presentation we cover the top three risks to kids online and the top five steps you can take to protect them. This course is based on the experiences and lessons learned from a variety of SANS top instructors who not only specialize in security, but are parents just like you. This talk is sponsored and delivered by SANS Securing The Human program.

Key take aways include:

  • Why securing kids online is harder then securing kids in the physical world.
  • Top three risks they face; strangers, friends and themselves.
  • Use of education to inform and secure them.
  • Use of a dedicated computer just for kids.
  • Kids Acceptable Use Policy.
  • Filtering and monitoring tools.
  • Additional lessons learned and resources to learn more.
