To help promote online safety, digital ethics and privacy, Norton by Symantec has partnered with author, child rights activist and parent, Tara Moss, to be the first Norton Family Ambassador in Australia.
“Security, privacy and online ethics are now a necessary part of parenting, just like road safety and safe sex education. Kids using connected devices in the comfort of the family home may look harmless, but activity online has consequences and impacts beyond the home and beyond that moment. As with anything else, education and guidance are needed. To some, the Internet is not part of the real world, but it is. Things said online are sent by real people and received by real people, and when the recipient is a child, unpleasant online exchanges can be more damaging,” said Moss.
Polling 600 Australian parents across the country, Norton has released survey data that examines parents’ understanding and involvement with their children’s online activities. The survey reveals that 74 percent of Australian parents are oblivious to their kids’ online activities.
