News In Brief

Indianapolis Public Schools will have a “Cyber Security: Keeping Kids Safe Online” seminar at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 2 at Shortridge High School. Cyber security expert Theresa Payton, a former White House Chief Information Officer, will provide parents, guardians and children with information that can protect them from online dangers. 

Payton will discuss how to properly monitor and manage electronic device usage, secret applications that hide inappropriate online behavior, how social media posts can expose personal information, why stranger danger is a threat online and how sharing too much information can impact life after high school.
