Safer Schools Together developed Digital Threat Assessment Training to keep pace with the evolving technology challenges that affect school and public safety today and to help communities recognize and identify individuals on the pathway to violence, homicide, suicide, and radicalization. The vast majority of recent school attacks have had precursors leaked online in the form of social media posts. Knowing where, how, and when to look for this critical information is one of the current challenges that this country faces, and we will thoroughly address this as part of our training.
In this training, we will thoroughly cover the following:
- online verification and authentication of images
- assessing anonymous online threats
- swatting and doxing
- geolocational utilities and dangers
- image verification of firearms and suicidal imagery and/or radicalized images
- searching Instagram by school location
- privacy and security when digitally connecting with students
- understanding how to complete basic data collection from social media platforms
- capturing and documenting social media evidence
- identify strategies on how to respond to cyberbullying and online hate
- how to identify and respond to worrisome shifts in frequency and intensity in students’ posts
- current privacy and security issues in the remote learning world.
An accurate level of risk through the threat assessment process cannot be determined without considering the digital behavioural baseline of the threat maker(s). It is imperative to understand the tools and methods available to your threat assessment teams provided in this valuable training.
