Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA)
The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) requires organizations in the United States with websites that are accessed through a computer or other device to implement policies that block illegal content and provide secure browsing environments where appropriate.
Security Solutions That Align with CIPA Requirements
Domain name system (DNS) filtering blocks malicious connections and protects against phishing attacks. This includes web blockers and additional capabilities to restrict content and prevent access to websites, emails, or files that can lead to vulnerabilities and incidents. These restrictions provide protection against threats and support adherence to CIPA and similar compliance regulations. Content filtering can be deployed using hardware appliances or software as a service (SaaS).
Visibility tools that can track and expose threats and identify user behavior contributing to a compromised network are a must-have for achieving compliance. Monitoring network security threats, issues, and trends accelerate the ability to eliminate threats, set meaningful security policies across the network, and meet critical compliance mandates.
Protect networks and gain visibility to detect known and unknown threats. SSL inspection for encrypted traffic and content filtering are critical to blocking malicious or unwanted content and maintaining compliance.
Battle-tested security solutions are necessary to protect against threats that leverage unknown vulnerabilities. Antivirus software, web filtering, and activity monitoring all play important roles in preventing malware from infecting endpoint devices.
