This SYA session will begin by addressing the basics of COPPA compliance, Safe Harbor certification, and current copyright and data protection issues. We'll identify common-to-critical risks faced within online gaming communities and how best to manage those risks. The primary focus will be upon two user-risk categories: Griefing (spamming, scamming, harassment, etc.) and Predatory behavior (credit card fraud, stalking, harassment, and other harmful and potentially illegal forms of user abuse). We'll complete the session by examining the cost of risk to your bottom line and proven methods to mitigate the risks.
