Here is the digital safety checklist from the book (no login/email necessary).


This is a book by Mark Hillick. I have been working in tech for over 20 years, most of which have been in cyber security, 8 of which were in the video gaming industry. I started writing this book unintentionally, in fact it started as a way of formalizing notes so that I could more easily and consistently answer questions from other parents about video gaming, and how they could ensure they and their children were safe and secure on the Internet.

The primary goal of this guidebook is to make the topic of “keeping kids safer on the Internet” more easily understood and accessible, with actionable advice.


As a sample introduction to the book, you can read the Roblox section, which is part of the Gaming Platform cheaper, here.


I previously delivered a presentation of the content in this book, you can find the deck here.

Can I use this in my school/class/university etc?

I'm sure we can work something out :)
