iGuardian parent program lead by Special Agent Todd Wilton at GCC.

Written by on April 18, 2019

IRONWOOD – Living on the Gogebic Range in the most part is pretty safe for our kids, but what about on-line safety for our kids? Last nights at Gogebic Community College there was an iGuardian parent program lead by Special Agent Todd Wilton, with the Department of Homeland Security. Wilton discussed internet safety tips. Wilton said internet predators use many tactics to find their victims. His presentation included actual cases of sexual criminals who went through “extraordinary” efforts to gain a child’s trust. Some online predators create fake social media accounts using pictures of children whose ages are similar to the age of children they want to victimize. These criminals will often use messaging apps which allow them to communicate without going through a traditional texting service, he added. Wilton said with 80% of middle and high school students sending explicit images, sexual predators gain access to the images when they are shared on the web. Those who exploit children trade the pictures with other pedophiles or use them to blackmail the child. Talking to your children and a routine monitoring of your child’s cellphone is a good way to prevent them from getting into a dangerous situation. Wilton said parents can visit www.netsmartz.org for more information on internet safety.
