CIPA: It’s the law
The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) is a federal law passed by Congress in 2000 to help ensure the safety of children accessing the Internet over school and library computers. The act requires schools and libraries to use filtering to block dangerous or offensive material from minor users. To meet the mandates of this law, you should choose a filtering solution specifically designed for users in schools and CIPA.
