On November 17th and 18th the Family Online Safety Institute held its 9th Annual Conference in Washington, DC. This year's conference, entitled "Risks. Harms. Rewards", focused on the many benefits, opportunities, and challenges our online lives can bring us.

Over the two day event, panel topics explored cyber ethics and cyber-bullying, child online sexual exploitation, privacy, international trends, educational technology, digital parenting, and much more. The event brought together a vast audience made up of educators, industry representatives, non-profits, government, and academics to discuss and debate these important issues in online safety.

Highlights of the conference included keynote addresses by Christopher Wood from LGBT Technology Partnership, and Trisha Prabhu, founder of ReThink, as well as in-conversations with Dr. David Hill from the American Academy of Pediatrics, and Alexander Macgillivray from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

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