In 2010 Moore authored A Parents Guide to Cyberstalking and Cyberbullying, and she has been interviewed or published in media outlets such as Law Enforcement Technology, Focus on the Family, Popular Mechanics, Woman’s Day, The Stream, CBC News, and Good Morning America. Her story was featured on the television show Stalked: Someone's Watching. She has a new book, Cyber Self Defense, due out in October 2014 from Globe Pequot.
Alexis Moore spent her early career as an online investigator in the United States. In 2004 an ex-boyfriend hacked into her online accounts, shut off her utilities and cellphone, and emptied her bank account, starting a cyberstalking trend that lasted for three years. Moore consequently shifted her career focus to cybercrime.
Moore is founder and president of the non-profit organization Survivors In Action, a national advocacy group that "provides individual assistance to victims of domestic abuse, particularly those who have experienced cyberstalking." She also founded the Crime Victim Organization and Advocate Network, and is director of victim outreach for the Tri-County Crisis Center. Through the organizations, Moore has been active in pushing for anti-cyberstalking legislation. She and six other American women were awarded the 2012 Women’s of Peace Award from the Women’s Peacepower Foundation.
In late 2010 Moore authored A Parents Guide to Cyberstalking and Cyberbullying, with all book proceeds donated to victim resources. She also wrote an About.com series of articles from which her definition of cyberstalking was used in anti-cyberstalking legislation by the Republic of the Philippines Congress in 2010. As of 2014 she is a speaker and consultant on cybercrime, and has provided expert testimony at Senate and Assembly Public Safety Hearings.
She has been published, quoted, or interviewed on cyber-crime related topics in publications including Law Enforcement Technology, the New York Times, the El Dorado Hills Telegraph, the Canadian edition of Focus on the Family, Popular Mechanics, and Woman’s Day. In 2011 her story was featured on the Investigation Discovery show Stalked: Someone's Watching, in the episode "Six Degrees of Separation." She has also been interviewed by the Al Jazeera America show The Stream, CBC News, CNN, FOX, Headline News and Good Morning America.
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.
