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 new risks, risks that as parents you may not understand or even be aware of. In this webcast we cover the top three risks to kids online and what we as parents/guardians can do to protect them. This talk is based on the experiences and lessons learned from a variety of SANS' top instructors who not only specialize in cyber security, but are parents just like you.
