US-CERTIt is that time of year again for many parents. We are sending our children back to school. They have their phones, tablets and computers and are ready to start a new year. This is the perfect time to think about their safety.

One such safety category is keeping your children safe online. The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) has provided a list to several resources related to children and technology. These resources are a good rule of thumb for everyday life, but now is a good time to look over the material and where you see fit talk with your children. Warn them of the dangers of certain internet activity.

You can find the list of resources here.
