Adults, teens learn rules for safe online usage

Nov. 29, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- The rules for staying safe in day-to-day living, like remembering to look both ways before crossing the street, are staples of early learning, but the rules are still being written when it comes to staying safe online.

That's why Marshall University, along with the Department of Integrated Science & Technology, the FBI, and the Appalachian Institute of Digital Evidence, sponsored a cyber safety summit Wednesday.

The summit addressed a broad audience of adults, college students and teenagers with information about topics like preventing cyber bullying, handling the dangers of social media and keeping personal information safe and secure.

The summit originally was planned for Oct. 30, but was rescheduled due to bad weather.
