As a Cyber Security Consultant who works in the industry helping businesses and parents, I have the amazing opportunity to be a guest on various publications. These are some of the places I've been on recently!!
"Brown noted that while there’s a lot her team can do to control employee access to customer information and even purge data from data harvesting and selling sites, working with third-party providers can present significant issues."
"This is a type of malware plugin or corrupted code forced into legitimate websites that are designed to capture and track payment, login and account information as customers make legitimate purchases. Individuals should be cautious when entering payments on sites and make sure the sites have been updated to prevent such attacks."
"If there is anything on your computer and network that you haven't backed up and can't afford to lose, pay the ransom," she [Chelsea] says.
"Think of an intranet as the courtyard of a medieval castle, while the internet is the village outside of the castle. Both knights (employees) and commoners (customers, vendors, etc.) have free access to the village. But only knights are granted access inside the castle, where the most precious assets of the kingdom are securely housed (documents, private company emails and communications, meeting briefings, copyrights, trademarks, etc.)."
"Chelsea describes how, in addition to using certain device parental controls features, their family has also introduced the idea of physical boundaries:"
"This is a crucial step since having a professional helping hand guiding you almost always yields better results than you trying to battle things out on your own. Chelsea Brown from Digital Mom Talk raises similar points to this saying. . ."
"When it comes to rectifying the problem, Brown says, “I’d recommend talking to law enforcement to learn more on the specific hashtags predators use. [Officers] are the ones who actually … track those hashtags to find and convict predators online and in person.” Parents may then use this information to adjust their posting habits."
"Remember, for today's teens, the world is a much safer place than it was for previous generations. Kids don’t see that much harm in getting to know people online. If they can’t see the danger, they think it doesn’t exist, says Chelsea Brown, CEO & Founder of "Digital Mom Talk"."
"I didn't decide to become a family cybersecurity consultant; God called me to do this. I learned through helping my parents with parental controls for 8 years that two things can happen: you can control your child and lose the relationship with them permanently or you can create a safe place for you and your kids. . ."
Parents can't get away from tech these days- but we can get a handle on it and consciously decide how much we are going to allow in our homes. Cyber security expert Chelsea Brown is a master at getting parents and children to talk about electronics usage and find solutions that work for the whole family.
"Today's security guest is an Information Security Consultant CompTIA Security+ Certified. Basically this means she is really good at tech and she is passionate about keeping our kids safe online. She is a wife and mom of 3 kiddos under the age of 4. So she is really busy and extremely smart.
How I Use Technology In My Home
I love technology—so much that I chose a career as an information security consultant. But I also hate it. I have seen the families of close friends torn apart by technology addictions. And I regularly deal with issues from identity theft to cyber bullying to pornography when consulting with families.
Kids can get around just about anything. Let’s face it, technology comes naturally to the younger generation. They’re quicker, smarter and more creative than their parents.
That’s why WebSafety talked to professional hacker Chelsea Brown (Information Security Consultant CompTIA Security+ Certified) to bring you the best tips to keep your kids from hacking your privacy and protection plan.
Chelsea has taught classes alongside local law enforcement agencies in Boise, ID (August 2018) and Las Vegas, NV (June 2019) as part of internet safety awareness campaigns to help parents understand the powerful tech tools they have access to. These include parental controls, internet filters, identity theft prevention, preventing cyberbullying, protecting digital reputations, and more!!
Chelsea is very active politically outside of Digital Mom Talk. She is a regular contributor at Power2Parent, a Nevada Parental Rights Protection Group, helping them put out content to parents about simple ways we can make the internet safer for our children.
She has taught classes for them in their effort to help parents have the tools they need to protect their rights as well as those of their children.
