We all want the best for our children, including the ability to leverage technology. However, with technology come risks, risks that our children are often not aware of or prepared to deal with. As parents, it is our responsibility to ensure our children understand these risks and how to protect themselves. But this can be challenging, as we ourselves did not grow up in the same environment.
SANS released the April edition of security awareness newsletter OUCH! In this newsletter, they explained the top three online threats to your children and how you can help them stay safe. SANS encourages you to download and share OUCH! with your family, friends and co-workers.
Strangers, friends & themselves are the top three threats children face online. SANS recommends to use proper education, controls in the form of defined rules, tracking activity on social networks, providing a dedicated computer and technology resources.
