Internet Safety for Kids and Families (ISKF)
Helping kids, families, and schools use technology safely, responsibly, and successfully
Kids are growing up in a world where being online is a normal part of daily life. Kids may appear to be technology pros, but they’re particularly vulnerable to online risks from viruses and ransomware to threats on social media, fake news, and cyberbullying.
Since 2008, our ISFK program has been teaching good digital citizenship and helping parents, teachers, and youth around the world prevent and address online risks. We offer free educational events through partnerships, volunteerism, grants, and donations. And we are excited to share free resources and insights from our in-house ISKF Expert, Lynette Owens.
ISKF has grown significantly. We are now active in 19 countries with sessions evolving from face-to-face events to online e-learning modules for parents, educators, and students of all ages.
Cyber Academy, the most recent project, received excellent feedback from our youngest digital citizens, and even their teachers, who love the discussions, animated videos, quizzes, and activity sheets.

Sponsorships and co-hosted events
Creating a safer digital world is a huge shared responsibility. So we've partnered with dozens of organizations to help make the digital world a better, safer place.
We are a proud sponsor of PTO Today's Internet Safety Night, a free program for PTOs and PTAs in 5,000+ schools across the United States. Partnering with PTO Today, we created a comprehensive, interactive presentation promoting discussion among parents who are concerned about their kids' online usage.
What’s Your Story? competition
The annual video and poster contest, What’s Your Story?, showcases the positive use of technology and empowers young people to champion online safety and responsibility. Youngsters from all over the world of varying ages address a specific question in the form of a video or a poster, targeting as wide an audience as possible with their message. An independent panel of judges determines the winners.
Established in 2011 in USA and Canada, the contest covers Ireland, UK, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, the Philippines, Egypt, Czech Republic, Poland, and will soon include the Swiss Alps, Italy, and Mexico.
Nearly 5,000 students have participated so far inspiring though-provoking discussions around the world.
