United States Attorney Office hosts cyber-security presentation

Parents from Daniel Webster School to hear the dangers of social media and how to prevent children from becoming victims

INDIANAPOLIS - United States Attorney Josh J. Minkler announced that members of the U. S. Attorney’s staff will make a presentation to the parents of students attending IPS School 46, Daniel Webster, 1450 S. Reisner Street at 5:00 PM today on cyber security.

Assistant United States Attorneys Tiffany McCormick and Nicholas Linder will address the dangers and pitfalls of using such social media as computers, laptops, tablets and smart phones including cyberbullying, sexting and child pornography.

“Our world of technology is evolving much faster than we as parents can keep up,” said Minkler.  “We must stay intimately involved in our children’s lives both on-line and off-line to keep them safe.  Technology has opened our children’s lives to a dangerous world that we did not grow up with.”

The media is welcome and encouraged to attend.
