Alexis A. Moore is the founder and president of Survivors in Action, a national advocacy group that provides individual assistance to victims of domestic abuse, particularly those who have experienced cyberstalking.

As a cybercrime expert, consultant, and speaker, Moore travels extensively to educate the public about privacy protection; she provides expert testimony at Senate and Assembly Public Safety Hearings. Through her program “High-Tech Self Defense for the 21st Century," she teaches audiences about high-tech crimes such as identity theft and cyberstalking and how to protect yourself.

Her credentials as a cyberstalking expert are rooted in painful experience. She originally worked as a high-tech investigator, learning the ins and outs of searches on the Net. Then she herself became the target of a cyberstalker for nearly three years -- a situation that changed her life.

To protect herself she learned all the cybertricks -- and the tricks to stop the tricks -- to survive, thrive and take assertive defensive action. She shifted her career focus to cybercrime, becoming a cyberstalking expert in the process. Today, she shares what she has learned as a speaker, facilitator and passionate victim advocate.

Moore plays an active role in the fight against domestic abuse, particularly the use of electronic means to invade a person’s privacy, by working with local, state, and federal agencies to pass legislation that will protect consumers. She is currently pursuing the creation and passage of a bill that would require datafurnishers to notify consumers when they sell private information to a third party.

Moore maintains a blog at her website alexismoore.com where she covers issues related to cyberstalking, privacy protection, identity theft and public safety.
