Post image for How Internet Security Savvy Are You?

If you have read any of my articles in the past, I find it extremely important to use technology as a tool to better your life. Some of those “tools” are for entertainment, and others are for security and safety of yourself and your family.

It can be daunting and scary, and frequently, people don’t have a clue as to how to even begin to approach combating it. Luckily there are tools out there to, yes, help you better your life.

Basic CMYKI was excited when Trend Micro, an industry leader of Internet content security and threat management for businesses and consumers, approached me about an exciting new program called “The Digital Joneses.” Framed as more of a “study” than a program, this year-long projects pulls the collective minds of 7 families around the country to participate in a series of challenges designed to understand what families go through when they enter the digital realm but also to educate the audiences that each of these family serves, whether they be friends or family, or the blogging audience that each of the families write to (all of the families selected have popular parenting blogs).

Here are the bloggers participating in the program:

There is a full page devoted to getting a better feel for all of the families participating in the program, so if you want insight into the order or chaos of all of our lives, be sure to check that page out. I believe that it is important to understand who the voices are and what their challenges are in terms of Internet security, privacy and awareness. We all represent different sets of values as well as technological expertise, have children of different ages and needs, and approach challenges in unique ways.
