‘Say No to Sextortion’

GARDAI have urged children and young people to ‘Say No to ‘sextortion’ and digital blackmail attempts by online perverts.

Launching a new awareness campaign it was revealed that ‘Sextortion’ is one of the fastest growing crimes in Ireland and detectives have warned of a marked rise in web cam blackmail cases.
It sees criminals grooming children and young people through social media and then deceiving victims into undressing or taking part in sex acts for computer cameras.
The work of organised crime groups mostly based overseas, ‘sextortion’ involves criminals getting to know their victims online.
Assistant Commissioner John O’Driscoll of the Special Crime Operations (SCO) said: “The Garda Síochána is launching a “Say No” campaign which represents its participation in a new campaign against online sexual coercion and extortion of children that is led by Europol.
“The ‘Say No’ campaign is aimed at providing advice to those persons who are victims or who in the future may become victims of crimes of this nature.
Posting or uploading explicit images on social media, or passing such imagery to others online, is extremely dangerous and can have devastating and lifelong consequences for children and their families.
“Parents and children should be aware of the dangers involved and the Garda Síochána advise that explicit images should never be posted or shared online.
“Any child who receives a request for naked or explicit photographs should not share any images. We ask them to tell their parents and immediately make contact with the Garda Síochána who will advise them regarding how the matter should be handled.”
Typically, once a relationship of sorts has been established by an attractive woman, the victim is encouraged to perform sex acts while filmed by a webcam. The footage is then secretly recorded.
The footage is recorded and blackmailers threaten to send images to friends and family of those targeted via social media.
The Garda campaign was launched as the European Union police agency Europol launched a similar campaign against online sexual coercion and extortion of children.
The centrepiece of the campaign is a 10-minute video, portraying two teenagers, a boy and girl, being exploited online either by a criminal organisation for money or by an individual online sexual offender seeking further sexual material.
The video, includes advice on how these crimes can be reported to gardaí, while adults as well as children can be victims.
The Garda National Protective Services Bureau (GNPSB) offers the following advice:
Protect your online life - use the maximum privacy settings.
Be aware that people online may not be who they claim to be.
Keep control online - do not share explicit or intimate images with anyone.
Five things to do if you believe you are a victim of this type of crime:
1. Don’t share more, don’t pay anything.
2. Look for help. You are not alone.
3. Preserve evidence. Don’t delete anything.
4. Stop the communication. Block the person.
5. Report it to An Garda Siochana.

Sextortion (webcam blackmail) National Crime Agency

A new report has highlighted how children as young as seven are being increasingly targeted by predators onlinewrites Ciara Phelan.
Also know as webcam blackmailing, sextortion is where a child is persuaded to share sexual information or images of themselves online and are then used to extort money or sexual favours.
The report released by Europol goes on to suggest that these types of crimes are skyrocketing, but go largely unreported because victims are embarrassed by the images they're forced to provide.
Detective Superintendent in the Garda National Protective Service Bureau, with responsibility for the investigation of sexual crimes and crimes against children, Declan Daly, said this is a growing problem in Ireland.
"It is a crime that's happening in Ireland, it's a form of digital blackmail where children have given images to predators online are then blackmailed for then other sexual material for sexual favours or for money."
Earlier this year, a conference showed that children aged between 13-17 years feel that they should be better protected online and should receive better life skills education, including online safety.
The conference which was held by the ISPCC and Vodafone Ireland highlighted that teenagers feel that there should be better regulation of social network providers.
Young people unanimously agreed that there was a need for a National Cyber Safety Strategy and that the government should address this as a matter of urgency.
Speaking about the issue earlier this year, ISPCC CEO, Grainia Long said that it was clear that there was a need for a cyber safety strategy.
"Cyber safety is the child protection issue of our time and it is so important that we listen to young people and children on how this affects them and how, as a society, we should take on the issue. It is clear that a national children’s cyber safety strategy should be an urgent priority for government," she said.

Trend Micro has just made it easier for parents to monitor their child’s online activity and Internet usage with its Home Network Security (HNS) solution.
This comes a time when cyber bullying is on the rise. Research indicates cyber bullying is up 60 per cent compared to last year.
Trend Micro’s Home Network Security plugs in to your wireless router and can be controlled with a simple app to protect the devices connected to your network.
It can now give parents more control along with notifications when social networking apps are being used.
The main arena for cyber bullying has been on popular social media sites with around one in five children aged between 14 and 17 experiencing cyber bullying or online harassment.
Trend Micro says children are spending about 12 hours on average online every week compared to just 10.5 hours watching television.
We also are connecting to the Internet with even more devices.
Today an average Australian household has 14 connected devices and this figure is expected to increase to 25 by 2020 – which is less than three years away.
Tim Falinski, Trend Micro’s consumer director in the Asia Pacific region, says having more connected devices at home could mean parents have even less visibility of their children online.
“The rise in popularity of connected devices at home means that kids are on the internet for longer periods of time – which makes it harder for parents to keep track of their child’s online presence,” Falinksi said.
Social media can make parents uneasy – but it doesn’t need to if there are some clear rules in place.
“Parents can now protect their children against internet dangers such as cyber bullying and online predators by monitoring their internet activity 24 x 7 from anywhere – enabling them to take immediate action.”
Here’s what the Trend Micro’s HNS parental controls can do:
Specify how children use the Internet and prevent specific categories of websites from being opened
Limit internet access to only certain periods of the day
Manage and create profiles for children making it easier to set the appropriate controls for all their devices
Easily view activities that children are doing online via their profile
HNS includes an Inappropriate App Detection feature so parents can supervise their child on social media and educate them about safe usage and the potential danger of cyber bullying.
With the Trend Micro Home Network Security, it requires no security software installation and now includes an additional layer of security for your home network and connected devices like smart TVs, gaming consoles, smart home products and smartphones and tablets.
Trend Micro Home Network Security comes with a two-year subscription and is priced at $299.
