Event Details

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. To commemorate the month, the Department of Homeland Security, Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships and the Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Cyber Crimes Center, Child Exploitation Investigation Unit are hosted a webinar to assist faith and community groups and caregivers of youth and teens on how they can help children to be safer online. The webinar also addressed support for families when their children have been victimized by online sexual exploitation.   

To stop the abuse from happening we must understand how abusers operate on internet platforms. We have brought together four of the leading organizations in this fight that will share insights on how to prevent child exploitation online, identify what child sexual abuse material (CSAM) looks like in communities, and provide tips on how to support children and their families if they become victims of this crime. We will also share resources you can use to educate children on how to be safer online and to support families dealing with the aftermath of this crime.

  • An overview of the latest research on technology and youth’s online risk-taking behaviors, including sexting, sextortion, and online grooming
