Raising awareness about cyber bullying

The cyber bullying workshop organised by the Samoa Fa’afafine Association (S.F.A.) has been hailed a success. 

Held last week Saturday, the workshop was considered a milestone achievement for S.F.A. because it brought out in numbers the young members of the association between the ages of16 and 40.

The turnout was impressive considering 30 percent of participants were non-S.F.A. members and 20 percent of participants were fa’afatama.

The workshop, held at Hotel Millennia Conference Room, was a half day full on event and funded by U.N. Global Fund. 

Presenters included Kevin Schuster who was also the main facilitator, Taimalelagi Kaisarina Salesa, Program Coordinator for Samoa National Youth Council and Charlize Leo, the reigning Miss S.F.A.

October is Cyber Security Awareness Month | 91.5 KIOS-FM – 91.5 KIOS

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, which the Department of Homeland Security (dhs.gov) says is “a yearly campaign to raise awareness about the importance of cyber security.”

Dr. Matthew Hale, Assistant Professor of Cybersecurity at UNO, says long before the huge Equifax breach there was plenty of reason to be concerned about identity theft.  He describes identity theft and credit card fraud  as “active areas of cyber crime” and “a massive industry” 

“It’s surprising how cheap you can actually get people’s information on the black market.  It turns out there’s roughly about 16 billion dollars in identify theft and fraud; this was just last year. And it typically affects about 15.4 million Americans – I think that was the

Everyone Can Prevent Cyber Crime With Awareness

The impact of fraud and victimization through technology as a target and technology used as a tool now totals in the billions of dollars annually in Canada. The destruction is only expected to expand through the ‘Internet of Things‘ — devices connected via the Internet that collect and exchange information with one another and with us.

During October, police services and subject matter experts from across the country want to safeguard all Canadians from becoming victims of online and digital crimes. The OPP 2017 Cyber Security Awareness Month public, media and social media campaign will focus on four broader themes, including:

  • Identity theft
  • Two-factor Authentication and digital citizenship (Online Child Safety)
  • Online shopping and Safe Trade Zones
