WiredSafety is the news and media resource for most news and entertainment networks, publications and broadcast and cable media. We appear in hundreds of articles and TV shows every year. We are selected as the media experts more often than all other cybersafety experts combined. Why? Because we can address all digital risks, for all demographics and digital devices, websites, social networks and technologies. We are cyberlaw and cybercrime experts. We are privacy and security experts. We are educators. We are seniors, parents, grandparents, young adults, teens and tweens. We cyberdate, buy and sell online, use all gaming devices and enjoy digital technology. We are Mac, Linux and PC users, Droid and iPhone users, DS, DSi and 3DS users. We love Wii, really love Kinect and are connected through our game devices to NetFlix, and web content. We sit on Facebook's International Safety Advisory Board (an uncompensated position), MTV's AThinLine Advisory Board and our advice and help is sought by every leaing industry member and most entertainment companies too.
WiredSafety has been around since 1995 through our dedicated volunteers. We were there when the Web began and through each of its evolutions. We were the first group to work with social networks (as early as February 2005), cell phone providers and game companies. We began helping Disney in 1999, and Facebook in June 2005. When you're there first, you learn the hard way. That's why we are as good as we are. That's why everyone calls us first when looking for expertise. We deliver what they need, help them conceptualize segments and documentaries. We take complicated issues and make them look easy.

We're here to help everyone understand how to be safer and more responsible while enjoying digital technologies.
