Ozone Park, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/06/2016 -- Anthony Davenport, CEO of Regal Financial, visited St. Elizabeth's Catholic Academy on June 15, 2015 to illustrate the dangers of cyber-attacks and identity theft.
During his demonstration, a group of fifth-graders learned how easy it is to gather personal information from the Internet and "hack" a celebrity. Within 21 minutes, the group of 10-year-olds obtained enough information to apply for credit as a high-profile entertainer.
As an extension of this event, Davenport sat down with former NFL stars Tiki Barber and Tony Richardson to discuss cyberbullying. With online activity at an all-time high—from both adults and children—cyber-attacks threaten emotional health, personal wealth, and peace of mind.
