• Think before you post
• Facebook and MySpace have joined with Law Enforcement to catch criminals on the internet
• We have to come up with creative solutions
1.) Empower the user to control who contacts them
       2.) Do not give them information like where you live? etc
• The first line of defense is parents and teachers
• The internet is like the Ocean listen to the life guard, Coast Guard, and Navy
• Welcome to the unknown (the images of the internet)
• Cyber crime is true and real crimes (physical and internet are the same)
• You would not go to certain areas in Los Angeles but we go to all kind of areas on the internet
• The internet is no more safer than on the street

• We have to understand that the internet is changing all the time
