Recognizing that October is National Bullying Prevention Month and National Cyber Security Awareness Month, this webinar series was a collaborative effort by the Department of Justice, the U.S. Departments of Education and Agriculture, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Program (ICAC).
The webinar focused on internet safety and cyberbullying. The FTC delved into the principles of good digital citizenship, internet safety on the go, and aspects of socializing online. The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force then explored apps that prey on children, shared recent criminal cases, educated audience members about tools to keep children safe online, and highlighted the consequences of cyberbullying. A question and answer session followed each presenter.
- Discuss how to educate kids on the dangers of online predators
