Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center

On November 12th and 13th the Family Online Safety Institute held its 8th Annual Conference in Washington, DC. The event, titled "Redefining Online Safety", broached the ever-evolving notion of online safety, and discussed what this concept really means in today's world. Attendees explored the best ways to keep ourselves safe online, and understand the risks that are out there, while still leaving ourselves open to taking advantage of all of the opportunities available to us on the Internet.

FOSI was pleased to bring together a vast audience made up of educators, industry representatives, non-profits, government, and academics to widen the debate on online safety, and create a new definition of what it means to be safe online.

Highlights of the conference included keynote addresses by FTC Commissioner Terrell McSweeny and FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel. There were also lively discussions surrounding graphic content, media literacy, digital parenting and sexting.

Summaries of each breakout session can be found in the agenda.
