Do you want to create a safe online environment for your children? Are you looking for the resources, tools, and community to help you protect adolescents from digital exploitation, explicit content, and more?
Many parents, educators, and caretakers think that by customizing controls on a child’s device, they immediately shield them from harmful or explicit content online. However, the reality of digital protection for children is much more complex — and that’s where Chris McKenna comes in. As an online safety expert with years of experience under his belt, Chris knows that there are four layers of digital protection to master: relational, locational, Wi-Fi, and device. So, how can you start implementing these four layers of safety in your home, school, or organization today?
In this episode of She Said Privacy/He Said Security, Jodi and Justin Daniels sit down with Chris McKenna, the Founder of Protect Young Eyes, to talk about creating safe and secure online environments for children. Listen in as Chris talks about how peer pressure impacts parents’ decisions about technology, his successful four-layered approach to digital safety, and the keys to establishing a proactive — but non-judgmental — space for tech-savvy adolescents.
