ESET launches Safer Kids Online program
Toronto-based information technology security software company ESET has begun an initiative called “Safer Kids Online.” The effort takes the form of a resource for children, parents and educators that provides information about maintaining a safe online environment for children. It consists of a website at <https://saferkidsonline.eset.com> and an accompanying monthy online newsletter. The property will address topics including social media, cyberbullying, creating strong passwords, avoiding malware and online gaming safety.
“Today’s kids are growing up with the Internet at their fingertips, and many are spending a considerable amount of time online,” said Tony Anscombe, chief security evangelist at ESET. “Yet understandably, many parents have a hard time not just monitoring their kids’ screen time, but also making sure their kids are practicing safe behavior while online. Given ESET’s in-depth knowledge and experience monitoring and addressing cybersecurity threats, Safer Kids Online aims to make parents’ jobs a little less difficult by providing easy-to-use tips and resources to help them better navigate their kids’ online lives.”
