Editorial Reviews

Michael Kaiser
“NCSA applauds Savvy Cyber Kids first book. Their effort to reach pre-school age children is critical to our evolution as a digital culture,” said Michael Kaiser, Executive Director of the National Cyber Security Alliance. “ As we do with other safety messages for children, we need to introduce online safety issues at a young age to guide children so they build positive life-long habits for staying safe and secure online.”
Sarah Ban Breathnach
"The most important gift a parent can receive is peace of mind. I applaud Savvy Cyber Kids, Inc. for knowing the importance of teaching children how to protect themselves while online and at an age where they still listen to the wisdom of their parents."

Hord Tipton, CISSP, executive director for (ISC)², the largest body of information security professionals in the world and founders of the (ISC)² Safe and Secure Online Program. “We applaud Savvy Cyber Kids for bringing focus to this critical issue and for the role they’re playing to bring cyber..."
Mark Goebel
"Savvy Cyber Kids is taking an important focus on the most important online constituent, the youngest kids online. As a parent of an 8 year old and a 16 year old, I have witnessed firsthand the interest of younger and younger kids to find online interests, communities and education. Savvy Cyber Kids understands that educating the kids and the parents on being safe online needs to start before kids start playing and learning online."
Judi Westberg Warren
“It is amazing to see how very young children can navigate technology. It is imperative that we start educating our children about how to make wise choices online as early as possible. Web Wise Kids is thrilled to see this resource created to educate children at the beginning of their lives online.”

Meet the Author

Ben Halpert is a man on a mission: to keep all kids, including his own, safe online. Ben comes by his passion and expertise honestly. By day, he is an information security researcher and practitioner for a Fortune 500 firm. By night, he is a champion for the protection of children in cyberspace.

Ben is the author of two books for wildly divergent audiences. The Savvy Cyber Kids At Home: The Family Gets A Computer (October, 2010) is a picture book which teaches online safety to preschool age children. For those in the business field, Ben’s next book, Auditing Cloud Computing: A Security and Privacy Guide will be published by John Wiley & Sons in 2011.

Seeing a void in the conversation about online safety for children before they begin K-12, Ben created a nonprofit to represent those who cannot speak for themselves: infants, toddlers and preschool children. Savvy Cyber Kids, Inc. was founded in 2007 and is now working with the National Cyber Security Alliance and other organizations towards filling the gap.

Ben was a contributing author to Readings and Cases in the Management of Information Security and the Encyclopedia of Information Ethics and Security. Ben writes the security column for Mobile Enterprise Magazine and has contributed to seven NIST special publications and Ben is on the advisory board of numerous colleges and universities. He has keynoted and presented sessions at numerous conferences, including the RSA Security Conference, InfoSec World, IEEE, and ACM conferences. Ben is an adjunct instructor at a local University where he teaches the Master’s of IT information security concentration curriculum. Ben is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and is a PhD candidate at Nova Southeastern University.
