THOUGHT HEARTBLEED MAKES YOU VULNERABLE? TRY CYBERSTAKING
Victims of domestic violence have to worry about what happens when their abusers are in the same house with them, and now they have to worry when their abusers are nowhere in sight. Technology is making stalking, bullying, controlling, and even spying a real threat to victims. NSA type tracking and monitoring doesn’t hold a candle to the intrusive ways abusers use technology to harass and strike fear in their victims. MobiStealth was used by a murderer to read his girlfriend’s text messages to learn of her plans to leave him. The CDC reports more than 8 million women have been stalked, and 81% of those women were physically assaulted.
Michele Garcia is the director of the Stalking Resource Center for the National Center for Victims of Crime, an organization that works toward education, promoting victim safety, and holding offenders accountable. She has 20 years of experience working for victims’ rights and domestic violence.
