Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Shaila Rana, and I'm the founder of CyberSecure, a security training and awareness consulting firm. Keeping children safe online is difficult. The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act aims to do this. If you want to understand how to protect children online and how to be in compliance with this law, then this course is for you. Some of the major topics that we will cover include how to comply with COPPA, who is protected, who must comply, and penalties of noncompliance. In this course, you will learn an overview of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. Next, you'll learn about who must comply with this rule. We'll also talk about how to comply with COPPA. Then you'll learn about legal ramifications of noncompliance. And then finally, you'll learn about the requirements for consent, direct notices, and safe harbor provisioning. By the end of this course, you'll understand COPPA and how to remain in compliance with this law and protect children online. COPPA has been in effect since 1998. Organizations that collect information from children under 13 have to conduct business in a certain way to remain compliant. Parents must understand their children's' rights and organizations must understand how to protect children online. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Security Governance: COPPA.
