As a new father I think about the proper use of technology for my daughter and her future friends. There are so many tools being created as we speak; it is tough for everyone to keep up and stay on track for our own purposes. If sometimes we don’t even have the time to read up on the gadgets, software, and other tools, we have even less time to go and check what tools our children are using.
Given that Daniela is almost 6 months old I don’t have to worry about her using technology for a long period of time. But in actuality I do. We decided to create a website to share pictures and unique experiences with family and not post on Facebook where strangers can have easy access. So right off the bat we made sure to share very little or nothing about Daniela online (and you can’t imagine the complaints we have received) and I if you read my friend Tommy Walker’s post we can clearly see how I am not the only one.
The reason why we created papaheroes.com was to answer those questions and identify which tools might pose a threat to your kids and what you have to watch out for.
Having had various experiences in life from serving in the U.S. Army where I enhanced my knowledge in physical security to moving into the IT Security field for various years safeguarding the information of large and medium sized companies. I want to apply those same skills towards identifying threats and vulnerabilities that might harm our children.
At papaheroes.com we are here to become better parents! Along the way we can also become better human beings and share our super powers as parents. We want you to become part of the alliance of protecting our kids!
What gadgets, devices, software, or technology tools worry you?
Which ones would you like us to address and make sure your kids are using them right?
Overall what tools do you need to mitigate the risks of being victims of Cybercrime?
Are you up to the challenge of being part of the Alliance?
Like the concept. I’m with you on sharing very little about my son – his name is Alex and that is the beginning and end of what I write about him online – when he is old enough it will be up to him how much he wants to share online.
Long live the alliance!
