The digital age has created new ways to bully, slander and abuse. Children can now get cyberbullying attacks by email, through text messaging, over social networks including Twitter and Facebook, and publicly-available discussion boards.
Angelbeat.org was formed to help educators and parents protect our nation’s youths against these on-line threats.
Angelbeat is the largest IT event company in North America, having held over 750 events in 60 cities since its founding in 1999. These events focus on security issues and are designed for technology executives working in education, healthcare, corporate and government. More details are at www.angelbeat.com. Recently, many CIO’s from K12 school districts asked Angelbeat to leverage its expertise and coordinate workshops for educators, parents and the broader community on Cyberbullying and Internet Safety. Based on these requests – and being a parent of young children - Angelbeat CEO Ron Gerber launchedwww.angelbeat.org.

Each www.angelbeat.org workshop features keynote talks from the FBI, Microsoft and an Apple cybersecurity consultant, who will be joined by regional government/law enforcement officials and other technology leaders.
Angelbeat.org is the only place where educators and parents can directly learn from these organizations, and protect our nation’s youth.
Typical attendees are parents, educators and community leaders in each city, though any and all individuals are welcome to attend. 50% of net proceeds will be donated to your school District or organization
