Each day an estimated 10 million children from kindergarten through 12th grade are approached by an Internet predator while on-line. Deb Hale of Cyber Wellness of Siouxland will address this and other issues when she presents “Cyberspace Connections: When ‘My Space’ is Invaded” on Thursday, Sept. 7, at 7:30 p.m. in Roadman Formal Lounge, 3600 Peters Ave., on the Morningside College campus. The free event, which is sponsored by Morningside’s Academic and Cultural Arts Series (ACAS), is open to the public.
Hale will lead a discussion about personal information and relationships in cyberspace and address issues of Internet safety for students. A question and answer period will follow the discussion.
Hale is security administrator at Long Lines in Sergeant Bluff, Iowa, and is a handler for the Internet Storm Center, an organization of volunteers from around the world who monitor Internet activity 24 hours a day, seven days a week. She is a member of the InfraGard team out of Omaha, Neb., an organization of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that seeks to share information and resources on threats to the nation’s infrastructure. In addition, Hale is a member of the Tri-State Disaster Council and the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) in Sioux City.
