“The book was born from conversations I have had with friends who have children and are concerned about them spending time on the internet, what they might encounter there and the devices they are using. Technology is a great enabler if used responsibly, but parents can feel it’s a struggle to keep up to speed with the pace of its development and that the etiquette for using it is often defined after the fact,” said Tony Anscombe, Senior Security Evangelist, AVG Technologies. ”I am a dad and I am also lucky to work for a company that provides products and services that help people to protect themselves and their families online. Yet even I find the culture shift driven by technology adoption and user behavior hard to keep up with, and my book sets out to help other parents just like me make sure they understand the basic privacy and protection options they can easily put in place.”
