viNGN presents on Child Internet Safety at Yvonne Bowsky School PTA Meeting

bowsky-pta-child-internet-safety-13-5900x3933viNGN was invited to speak about protecting children on the Internet at the Yvonne Bowsky Elementary School PTA meeting on Thursday, Nov. 17, 2016. The presentation focused on the creation of “Threat Models” as proposed by digital privacy advocates Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), and utilizing the short film “6 Degrees of Information” by NetSmartz/National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). This short film highlights the many ways digital privacy and online safety can be compromised by leaving “Digital Footprints” – Personal Identifiable Information (PII) we are not even aware of.
