The social-networking site and the Internet-safety organization teamed up on Internet Safety 101, a four-part DVD teaching series, accompanying workbook, and Website featuring experts educating parents about the dangers their kids face online.

MySpace chief security officer Hemanshu Nigam posted on the MySpace Blog:

In the program, I share useful advice for parents related to safety and security in social-networking sites and discuss the importance of tools such as privacy settings.

As a significant industry partner for the campaign, we are excited to work alongside Enough Is Enough on the Internet Safety 101 program. We are steadfast in our commitment to keep people safer online through unique features, programs, and partnerships with leading safety advocates.

As part of this commitment, our company began its relationship with Enough Is Enough three years ago to help families win the battle against online risks. Like us, Enough Is Enough believes that parents are the first line of defense in protecting kids, and we wanted to help them create another tool that could arm parents with the information that they needed.
