October has been designated "National Cyber-Security Month" and policymakers continue to debate what additional steps need to be taken to protect children online from objectionable content or unwanted contacts. In the meantime, however, parents are dealing with that task every day. In carrying out those challenging responsibilities, they will need all the help and advice they can get.

This Progress & Freedom Foundation panel featured some of the leading experts on online child safety in America and the books they have authored about these issues. The participants discussed their advice for parents on this front and also outlined what step public officials should take to assist parents and kids.
