Seeking to address some of the dangers new technology presents to our students, the Department of Homeland Security on Tuesday, April 25th will address Middle School students at 2pm and parents and community members at 6:30pm in the Moreau Center. Their iGuardian presentation would be helpful for anyone in the lives of our children.
The description of the presentation is as follows:
Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) is committed to combatting the sexual exploitation of children; as such, investigations of child sexual exploitation are among HSI's primary investigative priorities. The sexual abuse of children impacts the most vulnerable segment of our society. HSI recognizes the importance of education and community awareness regarding the dangers of online activity. Project iGuardian aims to counter a disturbing fact: many online child predators are able to find victims online because children are not aware of how dangerous online environments can be. HSI believes that providing students, parents and teachers with information regarding the dangers of online environments and how to stay safe online can help prevent many instances of this crime. That is why HSI has partnered with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children to develop iGuardian.
