Maintaining Safety & Security in a Digital Age
Thursday, September 20, 2019
Technology increasingly affects our lives and has a significant impact on survivors. Emerging technologies and the ways in which abusers misuse technology pose a challenge for victim safety, privacy, and confidentiality. This webinar will look at how perpetrators misuse technology as another tool to stalk, abuse, and further control victims. We will also identify strategies for basic safety planning around technology risks and privacy while focusing on how to empower survivors around tech. Finally, we will explore legal considerations for advocates working with survivors and the state specific statutes these crimes may fall under.
