Cybersecurity course shares tips to stay safe before, during and after travel
To help increase awareness of online safety, we’ve partnered with digital safety expert Paige Hanson, just in time for Cybersecurity Awareness Month (October). Cybersecurity Awareness Month began in 2004 to provide consumers and businesses with tools to stay safe and stop cybercrime.
Our new course features consumer and digital safety expert Paige Hanson, a certified Identity Theft Risk Management Specialist. Paige previously participated in two well-attended webinars in the spring, and received rave reviews.
“Cybersecurity includes everything from identity theft to romance scams, and can have a detrimental effect on women’s safety,” said Paige Hanson. “Of particular concern is identity theft, which is expected to increase significantly this year. By partnering with JourneyWoman, I hope we can share some very simple ways women can take control of their online safety.”

Why safety is important at JourneyWoman
JourneyWoman has been talking about women’s safety for almost 30 years. For women, personal safety is an integral part of planning travel – it’s not an afterthought.
We might think this will never happen to us – yet it can happen in an instant. We know firsthand how it feels when you’re travelling and you can’t access help, the vulnerability, anxiety and fear that creates.
Today, with online usage and scams increasing, we need to expand this discussion to the digital world. Our goal is to provide women with the tools they need to stay safe online, whether travelling at home or abroad.
