"Socrates Institute President Mary Radnofsky Speaks at The World Bank's Interntional Financial Corporation "Security Awareness Day"

"Your Kids Hacking Into Trouble? Online Pranks Can Be Dangerous & Illegal"

Monday, Jul 3, 2006, at 8:00 PM EST, I was guest speaker at an online, real-time discussion entitled, "Your Kids Hacking Into Trouble? Online Pranks Can be Dangerous & Illegal" at in the room, "After School Online."

The topic was juvenile hacking, because many kids' hacks that begin "innocently" can create economic and physical damage affecting entire populations. Increasing numbers of juveniles are committing these crimes recklessly and without realizing the results of their actions.

The questions addressed in the discussion were: "So how can we teach them the truth and consequences of their hacking pranks?" and "How can we help them turn their programming talents in other directions?"
