The Internet and the Family: A Chat with Computer Security Handbook Contributing Editor Robert Gezelter
Please join us for an informal chat with Bob Gezelter, Contributing Editor for the
Computer Security Handbook.
We will have an opportunity to discuss how the expansion of Internet
connectivity, from the workplace to the home, presents challenges to
our lives, and the lives of our children.
Technology is inherently a
double edged sword. The same communications technology that enables
unprecedented, painless access to vast research libraries also
provides access to hate literature and pornography. The same
communications technologies that keep friends and family in touch
wherever they are also enable communications with child predators.
This is not just about personal computers. The full range of handheld
devices creates the same benefits and problems.
