Event Details

Being a parent in a digital world is quite a challenge.  Many of us didn’t grow up with a smartphone attached to our hip. Tweeting was something we heard from the birds.  Facebook meant you were reading…with your FACE… in a BOOK.  Instagram?  Nope…we had Polaroid.  While the Internet has put libraries of information at our fingertips, it has also allowed the dangers we once avoided directly into our living room…and in our children’s hands. 
 
For example, did you know…?
  • 1 In 25 Children Received An Online Sexual Solictitation1
  • In 27% Of Incidents, The Predator Asked For Inappropriate Photographs1
  • Estimated Cost To Us Households Due To Malicious Software = $4.55 Billion2
  • Over 95 Million Known Malicious Websites Existed (Q1, 2012)3
  • There Were More Than 12 Million Identity Fraud Victims In 20124
  • 2012 Identity Fraud Victims Lost Over $21 Billion4

During ParenTech, we will reveal FREE... tools YOU can use to combat threats before they even enter your home.  We will talk about maintaining safety when using social media applications.  By exposing some tricks used by identity thieves we will discover how to protect ourselves.  We will even discuss malicious software that is attacking your computer and show how you can defend yourself…and your wallet…from these dangers! 

Come join us for an informative, entertaining, and FREE session!  Bring your questions and walk away with answers.
