Podcast series available on internet safety

CyberPatrol : 03 September, 2008  (Technical Article)
Internet security expert provides material for CyberPatrol in partnership to produce series of internet safety podcasts
CyberPatrol the award-winning web filtering company has announced an agreement with Internet Safety and technology expert and author Linda Criddle. Criddle is President of LOOKBOTHWAYS, a corporation that provides consulting to state and national governments, law enforcement agencies and other organizations committed to promoting online safety. In addition to consulting, Criddle operates an Internet safety web site and is the author of Look Both Ways: help protect your family on the Internet, an internationally recognized Internet safety book used by families and organizations.

"With social networking, instant messaging and the growing use of mobile devices that connect to the Internet, the challenges of safely enjoying the Internet are greater than ever," said Tori Case, VP of Product Management at CyberPatrol. "To meet these challenges and to ensure that families and others are empowered to use the Internet safely, CyberPatrol is partnering with Linda Criddle to provide her unique Internet safety and technology advice through a range of media."

CyberPatrol and Criddle will deliver Internet safety tips and other advice through video casts, podcasts and print material. Criddle's posts will be featured on CyberPatrol's blog, which will also feature posts by educators, librarians and others committed to online safety. In addition, Criddle will work with CyberPatrol in its advocacy of more effective online safety legislation and enforcement.

"There are more opportunities than ever to share information and enrich communications over the Internet," said Criddle. "Doing so safely requires family communication, some basic 'rules of the road,' and proven software to make sure those rules are effective. LOOKBOTHWAYS and CyberPatrol share a commitment to educate parents, children, seniors and others of the need to use tools to help protect them online."

CyberPatrol's Parental Controls software provides the utmost flexibility and customization for everyone in the family, from young children, through teens, adults and older surfers.

"While safety software like CyberPatrol Parental Controls is a critical element of Internet safety, it is one piece of the overall environment," added Case. "CyberPatrol is committed to a comprehensive approach to protecting people online. That means providing information and advocating public policy that makes it easier for families and others to protect themselves online, while still enjoying the freedom the Internet offers. Partnering with a respected expert like Linda Criddle is important to fulfilling our mission."
