October is Cyber security Awareness Month which is why Ca Technologies, a software company, says it has announced its support for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. CA Technologies will be funding the Center’s efforts to find children as well as programs to educate for prevention. The Center noted that over the last five years, 4,835 children have been found that had been missing for more than half a year.
In 2014, there was a total of 41,342 reports of missing children. Ontario had the most children reported missing with 13,556 over the entire year of 2014.
Another medium in line with the Center’s missions and values is the Missing Kids website. This organization is a resource for missing Canadian children. It allows for families of missing children to register that child and provide a place for community help. There are options to alert communities as well as educational material to help prevent another child from going missing. There were 24 children registered from Ontario on this website.
