Basic and Advanced Digital Threat Assessment (DTA) Training (September 14-15, 2021)
Basic and Advanced Digital Threat Assessment (DTA) Training is presented by Safer Schools Together (SST) which was established in 2008 and is recognized internationally for its leadership, innovation, and evidence-informed strategies to ensure safe, caring, and trauma-informed school communities. SST’s team of highly skilled professionals provide expertise, consultation and support to educators, law enforcement and other service providers across North America in addressing student, school, and community student safety-related concerns. SST helps school communities minimize and manage risks of student violence with reliable, professional training. Using best practice from the field of Behavioral Threat Assessment, school communities learn how to collect data and “connect the dots” to ensure early identification of youth at risk of harm to themselves or others and the interventions necessary to prevent needless tragedy, violence, and trauma.
BASIC DIGITAL THREAT ASSESSMENT (September 14) – Safer Schools Together developed the Digital Threat Assessment® (DTA) training to keep pace with the evolving technology challenges that affect school and public safety today. This training is intended for school administrators, law enforcement, and front-line community agencies. In this remote learning format, there will be short breaks every hour and a half hour for lunch. Case scenarios will be used from our Subject Matter Experts’ work across North America and a portion of the training day will be spent doing hands-on activities navigating the most current social media platforms and applications. To that end, it would be very helpful to have an Instagram account set up in advance of this training. While not necessary to have an account, Snapchat will also be discussed and familiarity with that app will be helpful.
ADVANCED DIGITAL THREAT ASSESSMENT (September 15) – Advanced Digital Threat Assessment Training will build and expand significantly on the content covered during the prerequisite Basic DTA Training. Participants will leave with a concrete understanding of how to find and curate relevant digital information as is typically represented in a real-life digital threat assessment data gathering scenario. Major engagement and hands-on practice will take place as participants are assembled into investigative teams and given a mock real-life situation. The final practical assignment will require working collaboratively as a team. Teams will navigate the realms of the social media world using both familiar and new techniques to produce a digital baseline report. We will supply templates and standard operating procedures to take home. Attendees will leave feeling confident in their ability to independently establish a threat makers’ digital baseline and produce a comprehensive report.
