Two member volunteers of the Safe and Secure Online program from (ISC)2® (“ISC-squared”), the world’s largest information security professional body and administrators of the CISSP®, were recognized Oct. 21 in an event by U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota.
In the wake of high-profile incidents across the country involving cyberbullying and cyberstalking, Klobuchar convened a public forum at Augsburg College to gather the views of Minnesotans on “Protecting Children and Youth in an Online World.”
During the event, Senator Klobuchar identified (ISC)2 members Tom Shuman and Dan Muonio, saying, “These individuals are part of (ISC)2’s Safe and Secure Online program, meaning that they have special training to give presentations to kids and others about how to keep themselves safe online.”
Shuman later provided an overview of the program to those in attendance.
“We agree with Senator Klobuchar that solving the problem of demeaning and dangerous behavior online will require the combined efforts of parents, schools, businesses and young people themselves,” said W. Hord Tipton, CISSP-ISSEP, CAP, CISA, executive director of (ISC)². “That’s why we ask concerned educators and parents to contact us to schedule a free presentation by a cyber security expert at their school.”
Klobuchar is Senate author of the STALKERS Act, legislation to strengthen and update federal anti-stalking laws to protect victims and provide law enforcement with the necessary tools to address the new challenges of cyberstalking. She is also a co-sponsor of legislation that would require public elementary and secondary schools to have policies on bullying, with steps to prevent and respond to it.
