STAMFORD - State Attorney General George Jepsen went back to school today to help make sure students are protecting themselves and their information online.

Jepsen was the keynote speaker at a cybersafety event at King School in Stamford. It was part of Optimum's Power to Learn Internet Smarts Event.

The attorney general addressed everything from identity theft to unintended consequences of posting unfavorable images. He says these issues are incredibly important considering how tech savvy most teenagers are.

Jepsen says his office has developed a stronger relationship with sites like Facebook and YouTube to help stop suspicious activity.
