To date, research has revealed important and often nuanced distinctions between those trafficked for sex, labor and domestic servitude. Human trafficking is a diverse and complex phenomenon, of which improved data is critical towards identifying methods for successful intervention.
Protect Us Kids Foundation focus centers on child exploitation techniques that leverage technology, data, and the social and human factor. As a non-profit organization, we rely on the invaluable subject matter expertise, global networks, and intelligence-driven resources, which we have learned, if used cohesively, have a shared mission to protect youth worldwide from cyber-related crimes, thereby, allowing them the freedom and security to navigate online.
The Protect Us Kids Foundation (PUK) Academic Outreach, Training and Development Program provide education, awareness and outreach in areas of technology facilitated sex crimes, Internet Safety, and cybersecurity. We also work with organizations to create a cybersecurity posture by providing security awareness and training along from both human and technology driven solutions.
The Academic Outreach, Training & Development Program provides (1) awareness and education to local, national and international communities to help youth and care-givers identify the threats and vulnerabilities associated with sex-related cybercrime in the use of the Internet; (2) empower the global community, to include PUK volunteers, to succeed through education, training and awareness; and (3) provide a positive ROI to companies by providing advisory services in support of Cyber, as well as Information Technology (IT) security awareness and training, that will promote a cyber-security focused culture in order to reduce risk to organizations within the community.
