SERAPH ANNOUNCES NEW NATIONAL STUDENT CYBER PROTECTION PROGRAM

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.

National Stalking Awareness Month

According to results from the 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, 1 in 6 women (16.2%) and 1 in 19 men (5.2%) in the United States have experienced stalking victimization at some point during their lifetime in which they felt very fearful or believed that they or someone close to them would be harmed or killed (National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey: 2010 Summary Report, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, November 2011). January 2012 marks the ninth annual observance of National Stalking Awareness Month, a month dedicated to educating the public about the serious and at times deadly crime of stalking.
