The third annual Cyber Crime Prevention Symposium was held on September 30, 2011 at the California Endowment in Los Angeles. The Symposium provided a unique opportunity for students, parents, and educators to learn about the dangers of the Internet and how to stay safe online.
A coalition of law enforcement agencies, child advocacy groups, and private entities participated in the symposium. The event provided a comprehensive overview of the many relevant topics relating to Cyber Crime with workshops and panel discussions on topics that included child exploitation, computer forensics, cyber bullying, "digital reputation," smart phone safety, and piracy. Special celebrity guests from Disney programs delighted those in attendance by making an appearance during the lunch break.
To encourage students to take back the information learned from attending this one-day symposium, student teams were invited to participate in a contest to develop a cyber safety program at their respective schools in order to educate the entire student body on the various risks associated with cyber crime.
