Cyberbullying and Cybercrimes of the Aged
Date: December 15, 2020
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
This presentation focuses on the elderly as both predators and victims of
cyberbullying and cybercrimes. We live in a world of vast technologies from cell
phones to computers, and these mediums have both advantages and
disadvantages for our lives, especially the elderly. Such technologies have proven
to be an asset to the elderly in so many ways, but if used unwisely, the technology
can be detrimental to some elderly persons who use it to harm others, and who
are victims of cybercrimes.
