As a retired police officer, husband and parent, cyber safety for families and their personal safety means a lot to me. The dangers no longer lurk near the playgrounds and school yards of our children’s schools, but in their bedrooms, pockets and around the world.
The Internet, with all of its amazing advances still hasn’t found a way to create a safe environment for kids, victims of crime or vulnerable people. While some software can help to insulate people, education is the secret weapon to combat cyber attacks and online bullying.
Almost important is the need for responsible Internet use by our youth today. Not understanding the importance of how the Internet works or the bigger picture beyond ‘today’ has meant kids losing scholarships, being removed from associations, kicked off of elite teams and in some cases, worse, with criminal records.
Tim is available to bring his experience and expertise to your school, organization or event to help educate students and parents alike with presentations designed for each.
