A miracle has bloomed and is now an invited guest in your living rooms, bedrooms and in your hands. It’s called the Internet and its everywhere. As a Cybersecurity expert and Certified Ethical Hacker, I’ve been a witness to the miracle but I’ve also seen its dark side. What used to be a gateway to learn and connect socially has become a haven for cyber bullies and predators who intend to harm our children and take advantage of our senior citizens. Protecting families has become my passion, and I’m offering an ongoing video series with up to date simple tips and tricks and “insider secrets” for protecting your families who are increasingly online.

My videos introduce you to the dark side of  the internet that many of our children are experiencing while online and connecting through social media sites. I’ll show you how to Google yourself, search out fake profiles, recognize changes in the behaviors of family members, how to block objectionable material, create unbreakable passwords, encouraging us all to assume a mindset toward Internet safety.  

Here's what you'll learn.......

Tightening your computer security: This module is a pre-flight check before we head back onto the internet. In many cases, I often see computers that are already infected, or has too much access enabled which easily facilitates a virus infection. I’ll walk you through how to tighten up your security on both a Mac and PC. We’ll do a quick check to ensure your browser is configured for safe and convenient browsing. I’ll guide you with a simple tool that will allow you to discover if you’re already hacked and being spied on by hackers or by someone you already know, like a crazy ex-boyfriend or girlfriend. Finally, I’ll also walk you step-by-step how to create an unbreakable password which will be required going forward for all your online activity. No more crappy John123 passwords YEEEEEEESSSSSSSS!!! 

Staying Safe Online: In this module, I’ll explain why and how hackers and scammers target and trick you to click items you shouldn’t. I’ll teach you about how Internet predators groom children and who the perfect victims are.

I’ll also show you how to search for information about yourself that you didn’t even know existed. 

Social Networking safety: I’ll walk you through how to setup some advanced security for your online accounts on the most popular social media sites. I’ll even walk you through step by step how to perform a Facebook privacy verification and how to spot fake profiles. This is extremely useful for those of you on dating websites. I’m sure you’d rather learn to do a few clicks rather than the risk of going on that date.

Addressing Cyber Bullying, Revenge porn and Sextortion: This is a very hot topic at the moment. We’ll learn about what are the definitions of each, their gravity and how not to respond to cyber harassment.

Mobile Security: Your entire world is on your mobile device and you don’t really realize it until your phone goes missing. I’m going to guide you on how to secure your device and set it up for “self-destruct mode” if it was lost and someone is trying to crack your code. I’ll teach you how to enable automated backups, and how not to get bill shock whenever you lend your child your phone.

Internet Scams: I’ll show you how to avoid getting hacked or scammed by dissecting a few sample emails that I’ve received over the years. We’ll also discuss a very serious type of malware called Ransomware that generated about a billion dollars for cyber criminals.

Solutions and Strategies: We’ll talk about how parents and their kids can work together and share online experiences. This allows you to to guide your children online like you do in life. I’ll show you monitoring tools which you can install on your PC or router in order to "Trust" but still verify your child’s online activity if needed.

Conclusion: We’ll wrap up and I’ll give you my 2 cents on what threats are on the horizon and what you should be on the look out for. Especially when your fridge, toaster and car get connected into the internet. The fun is just getting started!!!
