ASACP Releases "10 Tips To Help Protect Children Online" PSA
Los Angeles, CA (September 3, 2009) – The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) has released a public service announcement (PSA) explaining how webmasters can better protect children online. The video is currently available for viewing on the ASACP YouTube Channel.
The “10 Tips To Help Protect Children Online” video shows how webmasters can prevent children from viewing age-restricted content and help them to protect their businesses. Created by ASACP Technology and Forensic Research Director Tim Henning, the PSA offers simple tips that all webmasters should use to help legally protect their businesses. While the advice in the video is no guarantee of legal protection, it can be very helpful.
“Running an adult entertainment company means being responsible for your content and for those accessing your site, because you are legally liable for your business. For years webmasters have been asking ASACP how they can best protect themselves and their companies, the video includes many of the tips I have developed,” stated Henning. “While the video is not a substitute for professional legal advice, the tips we have included are important safe guards for anyone operating an adult entertainment website.”
ASACP encourages all adult entertainment webmasters to view the PSA. For companies who are looking for additional technical advice on how to protect children and their businesses, Henning is available to conduct educational seminars and consult on your current child protection efforts. Henning has a degree in Computer Sciences and has worked with ASACP for 13 years. He managed the development of the ASACP child pornography reporting hotline and the Restricted to Adults – RTA website label. He is a member of the Financial Coalition Against Child Pornography and is on their Technical Challenges and Analytics workgroup. Tim is a recognized expert in online child protection and his technical opinion is often requested as an expert witness in child pornography trials. He heads up the ASACP Technology Taskforce which strives to develop the most cutting edge technological advancements in child protection.
Founded in 1996, the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating child pornography from the Internet. ASACP operates an online reporting hotline that can help you to report child pornography. ASACP also works to help parents prevent children from viewing age-inappropriate material online, through initiatives like its RTA (“Restricted to Adults”) website label.
