FBI-SOS (Safe Online Surfing) Internet Challenge

The FBI has a new program that can help. Today, as part of its longstanding crime prevention and public outreach efforts, the FBI is announcing a free web-based initiative designed to help teachers educate students about cyber safety.


 

Effective October 10, 2008, the “Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act” [Title II of the “Broadband Data Improvement Act,” amending 47 U.S.C. 254 (h)(5)(b) of the Communications Act of 1934] mandates that elementary and secondary schools having computers with Internet access may not receive services at discount rates unless they submit to the Federal Communications Commission a certification that as part of their Internet safety policy they are “educating minors about appropriate online behavior, including interacting with other individuals on social networking Websites and in chat rooms and cyber bullying awareness and response.”
