The difference between life before and after the Internet is, above all else, personal. We make mistakes; we move on. Maybe we were the uncool, pimply faced kid in high school; we graduate and no one remembers. A collapsed marriage, a job rejection, the college not-of-our-choice … in the past we could put these things behind us. The Internet creates an audit trail which makes that nearly impossible.

Keeping kids safe on the Internet is aiming at a moving target. The rise of social media combined with mobile devices makes this current incarnation of the Internet very different than the one of just a few years ago. Today’s kids are cutting their teeth on iPads and cell phones. More than 90% of American tweens and teens are now online. Facebook is a world-wide phenomenon with over 500 million active users; 7.5 million US kids under the age of thirteen use it. Virtual worlds, social gaming, and online collaboration are their playthings today, and possibly their income tomorrow.

Join us at the Internet Safety Summit to help raise awareness about the newest online risks and solutions.
When: 2:30 PM June 23
Where: 7 West 34th St.
To register: Online registration will close on Friday, June 17 at noon. On-site registration will open at 8:00 am on Wednesday, June 22 and Thursday, June 23.

MEET THE TEENS AND THEIR ONLINE WORLD
Parry Aftab, Founder of Wired Teens and, likes to say that the best tool you have to protect yourself on the Internet is the one between your ears. Members of her group of TeenAngels will present their research and then offer advice and resources on everything from bullying to scams.

NEW SAFE SOCIAL MEDIA
WhatsWhat.me is a safe, secure,“kids-only” social network teaching positive online skills in an anti-bullying environment. It uses biometric photo recognition and human moderation to identify the child at each login and keep it “kids only.” Ohanarama, is the place for extended family to network and play together. Whyville is one of the early virtual worlds introduced to make science fun and interactive for kids. It’s transformed into a social network for kids to problem solve science.

TOOLS FOR MOBILE FAMILIES
McAfee Family Protection is a suite of tools that suggest age appropriate settings for different aged kids, filtering, search integration and reporting. Sprint’s 4Safety entertains and educates kids about behaviors from webcam use to cyberbullying. Verizon is actively educating and providing family tools as well. Intel is designing new classmate PCs and an entire educational ecosystem with kids’ safety in mind.

Sexting: The Headlines, The Law, The Challenge
Did you know that in many states just possessing or sharing a photo of a nude underage person makes you a child pornographer subject to the law? Hemu Nigam, a former DOJ prosecutor and cybersecurity expert, Daniel Siebert, Author and News correspondent, Danah Boyd, a Microsoft senior social researcher will tackle the subject that’s been so much a part of our news.
