Building safe digital communities
kids safe and responsible
Your kids have grown up using computers and cell phones. But though they may seem to know it all, kids are particularly vulnerable to online dangers.
Through our Internet Safety for Kids and Families program, we help prevent and address online risks and teach good digital citisenship.
Lynette Owens, a pro-technology parent, online-safety advocate, and tech blogger, founded the Internet Safety for Kids and Families program to raise awareness and educate people about the safe and responsible use of the Internet.
What’s Your Story? is an international video competition that encourages young people to lead the way in Internet education.
The competition, open to everyone ages 13 and over (including individuals and schools), aims to help parents, teachers, and young people to become more aware of Internet safety, encouraging and enabling them to act safely and responsibly online.
Our Summer Seminar for elementary school children teaches the importance of online security. This initiative started in Japan in 2004 and spread globally. There are approximately 70 Trenders registered as volunteers with many more Trend Micro volunteers active in multiple countries around the world, including the Philippines, Italy, France, Germany, and Argentina.
