Creating awareness of Internet safety helps to reduce opportunities for identity fraud, phishing, cyber bullying, desensitization and assorted Internet scams and cons. Fortunately, we are all starting to learn the importance of establishing our privacy settings in social networking sites and managing our online identity. Could we be doing more to protect ourselves? This presentation will provide a comprehensive view of online threats and will focus on practical prevention and educational tips for the beginner through to the technical user.

Kathy regularly presents at schools, industry events and conferences on the topic of identity theft and Internet Safety. In 2005, the Government of Alberta awarded Kathy with the Alberta Centennial Medal, recognizing her contributions to the community in the area of technology. In 2009, the Governor General appointed Kathy a Member of the Order of Merit of the Police Forces, an award recognizing her commitment and service to the community.
