Comcast is partnering with McAfee to host a national media tour tomorrow (June 18) to call on parents, teens and kids to take the Cyber Summer Safety Challenge. Tracy Mooney, McAfee’s chief cyber security mom, and Jay Opperman, Comcast’s senior director of security and privacy, developed the challenge to get parents, teens and kids to start a dialogue about Internet safety, social networking, online threats and what they can do to protect themselves and their computers.
Separately, for the fifth consecutive year, Cox Communications has partnered with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and John Walsh, host of "America’s Most Wanted," to inform parents of the potential dangers of the Internet and provide ways they can protect their kids online. Under the auspices of Cox’s Take Charge! program, the partners will present the results of a new survey on the behavior of young people online and their use of wireless devices.
Taking place on June 24 in Washington, DC, Cox’s summit will feature the survey in conjunction with a candid discussion with a teen focus group.
