Career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Alexis Moore spent her early career as an online investigator in the United States.[11] In 2004 an ex-boyfriend hacked into her online accounts, shut off her utilities and cellphone,[6] and emptied her bank account,[1] starting a cyberstalking trend that lasted for three years. Moore consequently shifted her career focus to cybercrime.[11]

Activism[edit]

Moore is founder and president of the non-profit organization Survivors In Action,[3] a national advocacy group that "provides individual assistance to victims of domestic abuse, particularly those who have experienced cyberstalking."[11] She also founded the Crime Victim Organization and Advocate Network, and is director of victim outreach for the Tri-County Crisis Center.[3] Through the organizations, Moore has been active in pushing for anti-cyberstalking legislation.[8][12] She and six other American women were awarded the 2012 Women’s of Peace Award from the Women’s Peacepower Foundation.[4]

Writing, speaking[edit]

In late 2010 Moore authored A Parents Guide to Cyberstalking and Cyberbullying,[2][8] with all book proceeds donated to victim resources.[13] She also wrote an About.com series of articles[14] from which her definition of cyberstalking was used in anti-cyberstalking legislation by the Republic of the Philippines Congress[15] in 2010.[3] As of 2014 she is a speaker and consultant on cybercrime,[11] and has provided expert testimony at Senate and Assembly Public Safety Hearings.[11]

She has been published, quoted, or interviewed on cyber-crime related topics in publications including Law Enforcement Technology,[5] the New York Times,[3] the El Dorado Hills Telegraph,[16] the Canadian edition of Focus on the Family,[2] Popular Mechanics,[6] and Woman’s Day.[3] In 2011 her story was featured on the Investigation Discovery show Stalked: Someone's Watching, in the episode "Six Degrees of Separation."[9] She has also been interviewed by the Al Jazeera America show The Stream,[7] CBC News,[8] CNN, FOX, Headline News and Good Morning America.[3]

Due out in October 2014, Moore also has a book published by Lyons Press called Cyber Self-Defense: Expert Advice to Avoid Online Predators, Identity Theft, and Cyberbullying. Co-written by Moore and Laurie J. Edwards, the book explains how to identify potential threats and gives advice on recovering from a cybercrime attack.[10]
