LAN and PC Services Announces Child Online Safety Initiative

Greenwich, CT, April 1, 2015 — LAN and PC Services (www.lanandpcservices.com) is committed to helping parents understand the risks their children face online today and providing tailor fit solutions for their protection, as a part of a child online safety initiative. Almost 93% of kids, ages 12-17, are online and exhibit a digital proficiency that is more advanced and adaptive then that of the prior generation.

Online safety should be seen in the same context as road safety. Where children go online is as important as who they are with and what activities they are engaging in. There are various kinds of danger that exists online as well. It’s an ever changing world that can leave parents feeling overwhelmed and ill-equipped to adequately protect their children online.

There are many factors to consider such as apps, social media, trends and even the devices used to access it all. Education, communication and parental controls are all vital and valuable tools in ensuring safety, but that only covers a portion of a child’s online activity and vulnerability. Social networks and chats should also be a concern.

Principal Jeff Higgins says, “In this day and age a parent’s best defense is information. They want to know that their child is using social and mobile technologies safely and responsibly. Monitoring their online active just offers another layer of protection for everyone. This is no different than an employer monitoring their employees.”

LAN and PC Services offers software installation that will capture custom specifications from key strokes to chat messages incoming and outgoing and much more on all internet accessible devices. The parent decides what features and controls they want and determines how and when they are notified with activity reports or alerts.
