2018 Keeping Kids Safe Symposium

Posted by Samantha Eck on 2/9/2018

Times have changed. Many communications have become digital. So how do we actually know with whom our kids are interacting? Are they giving out too much information such as their name, school, friends, and, more importantly, their location?

On Tuesday, March 20, 2018, the PA Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and the Pennsylvania State Police are leading the 2018 Keeping Kids Safe Symposium. This is a free cyber security forum on social media and the internet that will be held at the The Conference and Training Center at IU13 (1020 New Holland Avenue, Lancaster, PA 17601). Two sessions will be offered: 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. or 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend this event, specifically parents, educators, and community members.

Workshop Topics
This class will cover numerous applications and social media platforms commonly used by kids. It is important to know that apps come and go almost daily. Parents need to stay proactive in trying to stay educated on new apps.

Objectives: Discuss bullying, sexual harassment, predatory behavior, and exposure to inappropriate content.

  • Learn how to set mobile privacy settings
