Our Advice for Staying Safe Online at Family Internet Safety Night

This week, Carolina Advanced Digital VP of Engineering Jennifer Minella addressed an audience at the Chapel Hill Family Internet Safety Night, an event planned by the Chapel Hill Police Department with Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools which drew more than 75 students, parents, and teachers.

Jennifer Minella, network security engineer with Carolina Advanced Digital, said one challenge to protecting children on the internet is that parents did not grow up with smartphones or Facebook. “We’re trying to be responsible and help you guys through something we didn’t go through,” said Minella, addressing the students at the meeting. “It’s a bit of a challenge.” To help parents understand, presenters at the meeting provided information about how to stay alert and in control while on the internet, the importance of a “social media footprint” and how sexting affects teens and children.
