This month FOSI's Good Digital Parenting tackles the broad topic of cyber ethics and how we can encourage people to behave online as they do in the real world.
There are few crimes more heinous than the sexual abuse of children. While the offense certainly did not originate with the Internet, the development of the technology has allowed perpetrators to share details of their abuse with thousands of people around the world. This distribution results in the intensified and continual suffering of many victims.
A lot can happen in a year, especially in the digital world. In this 2014 online safety review, FOSI summarizes the changes in US policy, surrounding issues such as sexting and student data privacy, and policy changes happening in Europe and Australia. Also find out what FOSI has been up to in terms of research, events, tips and tools for parents, and plans and goals for 2015.
