CIPA Compliant Internet Filter—BrowseControl

CurrentWare’s BrowseControl is a technology protection measure that allows libraries, schools, and employers to restrict access to undesirable content and websites using features such as allowed/blocked lists, custom URL internet filtering, and category-based internet filtering. 

BrowseControl’s Content Filtering feature gives libraries and schools access to our up-to-date restriction database with over 100 URL categories.

With the category web filtering solution, any inappropriate websites can be blocked based on adult-oriented content categories, allowing children and patrons to use the internet without exposure to obscene material.

CIPA Compliant Internet Monitoring—BrowseReporter

CurrentWare’s BrowseReporter allows schools to implement and maintain CIPA compliance by monitoring their students’ use of the school’s technology.

What is the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA)?

The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was enacted by Congress in 2000 to address concerns about children’s access to obscene or harmful content over the Internet.

CIPA imposes certain requirements on schools or libraries that receive discounts for Internet access or internal connections through the E-rate program – a program that makes certain communications services and products more affordable for eligible schools and libraries.

In early 2001, the FCC issued rules implementing CIPA and provided updates to those rules in 2011.” – The Federal Communications Commission (FCC)

The goal of CIPA is to limit children’s access to obscene or harmful content over the Internet by incentivizing public libraries and K-12 schools to implement a “technology protection measure that protects against access to visual depictions that are obscene, child pornography, or harmful to minors” such as CurrentWare’s CIPA-compliant web filtering for schools and libraries.

How Can Schools & Libraries Become CIPA Compliant?

Schools and libraries must certify they are in compliance with CIPA before they can receive E-rate funding.

    To become CIPA compliant, public libraries will need:

  1. Internet safety policies that dictate safe internet practices
  2. Internet filtering technologies to proactively prevent exposure to obscene visual content (referred to as a “technology protection measure” outlined under CIPA)
    Schools have two additional CIPA requirements:

  1. Methods of monitoring the online activities of minors
  2. Education to minors about appropriate online behavior including cyberbullying awareness and expectations for conduct when using social networks or chat rooms.
