Digital Threat Assessment (DTA) was developed by Safer Schools Together through the need to keep pace with the evolving technology challenges that affect school and public safety today. The vast majority of recent school violence 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 the current challenge this nation faces, and it is one this training will thoroughly address.
DTA will cover the challenges that frontline investigators and school staff are currently facing including: anonymous online threats, fake accounts, sexting and sextortion, geolocational utilities and their dangers, image verification of firearms and suicidal imagery, and searching Instagram by school location and without needing to have an Instagram account.
Successful student threat assessments cannot be determined without looking at the social media and online activity of the threat maker. It is imperative to understand the tools and methods available to you to identify and manage online threat related behavior. DTA will use real-life case examples from subject matter expert work across North America during this training. A significant portion of the day will be spent doing hands-on searching exercises and the most current social media sites and applications.
