UT Passes Resolution, Identity Theft, and Donna at WiFiNow 2016
Happy St. Patrick's Day! It is hard to believe we are already midway through March! I am writing to share with you some important news and updates on keeping our children safe online.
Utah House Passes Anti-Pornography Resolution
Great news from Utah! The Utah House recently passed a resolution declaring pornography a public health crisis. Now, this historic resolution is headed to Governor Gary Herbert's desk to be signed, for the protection of children, families from the damaging effects of pornography. Hopefully, this bold action from Utah's elected officials will inspire other state legislatures to be bold and pass similar resolutions.
The White House has declared identity theft as the fastest growing crime in America. Identity theft can happen to anyone at any age, and it is of the utmost urgency to protect yourself and your loved ones from falling victim to this crime. The Federal Trade Commission has created a one stop shop resource at its updated IdentityTheft.gov for tips on how to protect yourself from identity theft, in addition to reporting the crime and restoring your identity with a personal recovery plan if you fall victim.
