Transatlantic Cable podcast: Raising a digital native

In this special edition of the Kaspersky Lab podcast, we discuss how parents should look at raising digital natives and the precautions they need to take.

This week, Dave and I were in the same city. Instead of taking a romantic stroll around Rome, we decided to sit down and record a different version of the Transatlantic Cable podcast (presented by Kaspersky Lab) and talk about a single topic — parenting and privacy in the age of the digital native.

Both of us are parents of young children and often discuss how we look at bringing up our kids in an age that really does not have a playbook. Over the course of a 26 minute discussion, we discuss the following topics:

  • What is a digital native?
  • Finding a playbook for parents navigating the digital age
  • Privacy and boundaries on social networks
  • Teaching kids to be good digital citizens
  • Safe practices for families and instilling trust
  • The Internet never forgets
  • Preparing kids for online risks

We hope that by starting this conversation, we can also start to think more about what is and what is not important for parents to look out for. We can also look for best practices in driving better use of the Web by the next generation. For some more resources for parents, please visit
