Protecting Your Family

In the COVID-19 era, families are relying on the internet more than ever to access information and distance learning. While the internet is an incredible tool for connection and innovation, it can also be a dangerous place for youth who may fall victim to hackers or online predators.

SCI, in partnership with USC Educational Partnerships, the USC Department of Public Safety and the LAPD, hosted the webinar “Protecting Your Family,” moderated by SCI Instructor Opal Singleton. The webinar featured experts discussing threats to child welfare, including human trafficking, online enticement, exploitation of missing kids and technology hazards. Watch the full webinar below.
