Cyber Security Awareness Tip of the Day: October 29

As parents and other adults in a position of influence with children, we teach our children to follow the "Golden Rule" -- treat others as you would like to be treated.

Due to a feeling of anonymity sitting at a keyboard, both adults and children alike often forget about the "Golden Rule". Cyber Ethics is treating others online as you would like to be treated.

October 29 Tip of the Day:

Teach your children proper Cyber Ethics. Everyone needs to remember that words typed on the computer and post online can be more damaging than spoken words. You can apoligize for spoken words and in time the hurt will be forgotten. Written words, even though an apology is rendered, remain as a record for all to see. They attract a much larger audience than a traditional person-to-person confrontation.

Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
