Safe and Secure Online Volunteer Program Training at RSA

ISC Squared : 03 March, 2010  (Company News)
ISC Squared is joining Microsoft at the RSA Conference for promoting the Safe and Secure Online service of volunteers gather to combat threats associated with social networking and cyberbullying
(ISC)2 will hold a special session at RSA 2010 to train member volunteers for its Safe and Secure Online program.


The (ISC)2 Safe and Secure Online program is a global initiative designed to teach children ages 11-14 how to protect themselves in an increasingly cyber-connected world by tackling such concerns as social networking, cyberbullying, viral emails, spam, identity theft and more. Using compelling materials developed by former school teachers and presented by certified information security professionals, the program is offered to schools at no cost.

Scheduled for March 3 from 5 to 6 p.m. in Green Room 123 of the Moscone Centre and co-sponsored by Microsoft and RSA, the orientation session is designed to give volunteers a greater comfort level with the materials and tips on presenting them to schoolchildren. They will also have the opportunity to have their questions answered after the session by both experienced volunteers and (ISC)² staff.

"(ISC)² is not only committed to the safety of children online, we believe educating kids on cyber safety can have a tremendous impact on the security posture of all society," said W. Hord Tipton, CISSP-ISSEP, CAP, CISA, executive director of (ISC)2. "We believe the basic security and privacy concepts taught to schoolchildren will filter up to their parents and help make homes and workplaces more secure."

The RSA 2010 volunteer session will kick off with remarks from Jacqueline Beauchere, director, Trustworthy Computing Group at Microsoft, with results from a recent survey commissioned by the company that gauged how online reputations have impacted people's lives.

"People of all ages and backgrounds are sharing more of their lives today through social networks, blogs, photo- and video-sharing, and other online services," Beauchere said. "A program such as (ISC)2's Safe and Secure Online offers kids tools and guidance to help provide a safer, more secure online experience for them and their classmates."

Initially launched in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2006 and in Hong Kong in 2007, the US (ISC)2 Safe and Secure Online program began in October 2009. To date, nearly 1,000 (ISC)2 certified members have signed up to volunteer for the US program. (ISC)²'s Safe and Secure Online volunteers have reached approximately 22,000 children worldwide since the program's inception.
