Cyber Security Summary for Parents

Protect your identity - protect your computer - protect your family

Here are a few quick tips for teens:

Avoid gossip. Everyone's bound to get a little excited by those oh-so-dramatic high school scandals, but that doesn't mean you have to text the latest rumor to everyone you know.

Protect your space. Use privacy settings and don't accept just anyone as a friend. Do some investigating - who are they? Why would you hang out with them?
