We live in a digital world. Gemalto is an international company for digital security based in Austin, Texas striving to make that world safe for everyone. They have developed technology that secures digital interactions, be it with a mobile phone, bank cards, or even electronic passports, virtually every device you use that has your identity attached to it.
In addition to that technology Gemalto goes even further by giving parents resources to learn and understand how their children are acting online and what they can do to help safeguard those interactions. How to limit your child's access, as well as what to do to limit others access to your child's information and personal communications. Gemalto gives parents tips on how to talk to kids about the benefits and dangers associated with the online world, how to safeguard your information, and how to secure certain aspects of the online experience, so your kids are safe using rules that you put in place. At http://www.JustaskGemalto.com, you can post a question that will be reviewed and answered by security experts. Similar questions and concerns are compiled into their tips where answers are posted, along with links to other sites that may have even more information on a particular topic. One of the best things you can do is simply talk to your kids. Open that line of communication, go to the sites theta they are going to, and let your children navigate through the site and show you their online experience. That will allow you to make an informed judgement on whether that is an appropriate site. Be sure to let them know there are consequences to online behavior. Let them know you can see their viewing history. It's important to explain that you do not want to be spying on them, instead, as a concerned parent you want them to be safe and make sure they aren't putting themselves in jeopardy. Gemalto partners with parents to help ensure that social media, social networking, and online interactions are a positive and safe experience.
