SERAPH announces a new program for schools and students. An Interactive Program To Protect Students Against Stalking And Online Predators. In 2006 a specialized Internet Safety program for student ages 7 to 14 was created by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium Foundation. The ISC is a international consortium of IT Security professionals in both private and public fields.
The Safe and Secure Online program was first introduced in the United Kingdom. It is now taught to students in Canada, Hong Kong, and the United States. To date, the SAFE AND SECURE ONLINE has reached over 70,000 students worldwide.
Recently in the Wall Street Journal, Joe Queenan wrote about the issue of travel safety. In ‘Dying to Go to Acapulco – Literally’ Queenan talks about the ‘online cheerleaders’ who are touting Mexico as a vacation spot in spite of the wide spread violence.
In response to their illogical claims of a safe Mexico, he poses the question, “Wouldn’t it make more sense to go someplace where there aren’t drug gangs, homicides and abductions?”
While traveling is a rewarding and fun activity it requires a plan of action to keep you, your family, students, volunteers or employees safe.
