The Impact of Screens on Security

A recently released study by the Kaiser Family Foundation entitled, "Generation M2: Media in the Lives of 8-18-Year-Olds," found that youths ages 8 to 18 spend an average of 7 hours and 38 minutes a day using entertainment media! In other words, today's students spend the majority of their waking hours in front of some kind of screen (i.e. computers, smart phones, gaming systems). That screen time is up from 6 hours and 21 minutes in 2004. Even more amazing - the study did not include texting!

What impact is this making on security? How does it affect your ability to provide a safe environment? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
