Making the Internet Safe for Kids

Little girl shocked by what she finds on the Internet

As uncomfortable as the conversation may be, not talking to children about the many dangers they face when going online will not make these dangers go away.

Recent studies have found that less than half of parents talk to their children about online safety. And if they don’t know anything about viruses, online privacy, phishing, social networking etiquette, and a myriad of other online safety and security issues, they are much more likely to be victims.

CDW Principal Field Solutions Architect - Security Assessments Mikela Lea has created the video Making the Internet Safe for Kids to walk parents through the many threats and challenges facing children on the Internet, while sharing common sense solutions to help keep children safe. After watching this comprehensive video, you will have a thorough understanding of the most common internet dangers for kids, and emerge with strategies for better protecting your children.
