Digital Threat Assessment Basic
One Day Training
Digital Threat Assessment was developed through the need to keep pace with the ever-evolving technology challenges that face our students currently. These challenges have entered the education domain with force and have overwhelmed school district staff throughout the world. The goal is to give attendees a stronger understanding of the current social media world, tools to be able to proactively identify student safety concerns, and provide strategies for dealing with online situations as they arise. All aspects of school safety and threats to schools now involve a social media or online component and we need to be prepared.
Successful threat and risk assessments can only occur if we have a solid understanding of all data needed to appropriately assess an individuals’ potential for violence. In 2020, an overall assessment of risk cannot be determined without looking at social media and online activity. It is imperative to understand the tools and methods available to you to identify online threat related behavior. Real life case examples will be used from our subject matter expert work across North America and a significant portion of the day will be spent doing hands-on searching exercises through the most current social media sites and applications.
