Through presentations, Internet Safety Concepts teaches people of all ages how to stay safe while on-line.
Scott Driscoll started his law enforcement career in 1989 and retired after 21 plus years. For the majority of his career, he has worked with the youth in his community to help them stay safe. Many years ago, Mr. Driscoll began teaching elementary school children about the dangers of the Internet. Seeing the growing need and concern for Internet safety, Mr. Driscoll developed programs for middle school and high school students as well as parents.
As a law enforcement officer, Mr. Driscoll has taken part in numerous Internet crime investigations. Some of the crimes were undercover on-line investigations, possession and distribution of child pornography, on-line bullying and harassment, identity theft, enticement of minors and many others. Along with on-line investigations, Mr. Driscoll also has done forensic computer examinations for law enforcement agencies and instructs fellow law enforcement officials on how to use the Internet for investigations.
As a parent, Mr. Driscoll is also aware of the concerns that parents face every day. While speaking to parents, it became very clear that they needed this education to help keep their children safe. With firsthand knowledge of Internet crimes and the dangers of the world wide web, Mr. Driscoll started Internet Safety Concepts. Through presentations, Internet Safety Concepts teaches people of all ages how to stay safe while on-line.
In November 2010, Scott’s first book, co authored by Laurie Gifford Adams, was published. The book “www.R U In Danger.net” is a guide for families and educators on what dangers lurk on the Internet and how we can all be safe.
The Internet is not going to go away; however, with awareness and education we can make the Internet a safer place.
