Technology and Stalking
Social media, mobile devices, and other forms of information technology make our work and lives easier, more productive, and enjoyable; but they are also vulnerable to being used by stalkers to harass others. This training presents information and examples of current technologies and how they are being exploited, information about ways to reduce vulnerability and detect misuse of technology, and resources available to help.
