This is the new reality for victims of domestic violence, stalking, sexual assault, elder abuse and human trafficking. It’s only getting worse as we become more reliant on technology, not less. It’s no surprise that technology is rapidly becoming a preferred medium to commit acts of violence.
Still not convinced? Don’t take our word for it. Calls to the National Domestic Violence Hotline are up 146%. Older Americans (age 60+) are the #1 targets of cybercrime. 1 in 25 Americans are victims of online revenge porn. 75% of underage human trafficking victims report being advertised online.
For all these reasons, we got to work engaging the cybersecurity community to create practical and trauma-informed programs to screen for, respond to and prevent tech-enabled abuse. It’s why we provide trainings around the world to Governments, State Courts, Law Enforcement Agencies, Universities, Nonprofits and more.
