Its after the holidays and most kids and teens are preoccupied with their new iPhones, tablets, laptops, etc. As parents, these devices have become digital day cares occupying hours at a time of screen time.
The only problem is that cyber-criminals are fully aware that kids have received new devices for Christmas and most parents don’t have a clue on how to monitor them.

Besides helping corporations by investigating fraud & securing their networks from hackers, Terry has developed a comprehensive assessment of threats, vulnerabilities & risks program for establishing needs for protection and accountability solutions.
