Education is the first step in keeping employees and companies safer in this technology-driven world. Technology is only a tool, we can determine its function & value because it's a conscious choice to do so. Research has shown, however, that without good digital literacy education it becomes more challenging for employees to make the right online choices. This presentation is designed to provide participants with proactive online "critical thinking" and decision-making strategies that they can immediately apply. Knowledge and the understanding and application of that knowledge is power. Our seminar will provide the knowledge and information that adults, employees and businesses need to know about the internet and social networks, to stay safer and become more digitally literate, savvy and resilient, thus protecting personal and corporate information and infrastructure when online at home or at work.
We love the fact that we are "disrupting" how social media safety and digital literacy has traditionally been presented to corporate and private industry, which has garnered us some critics, especially from those who see us as their competition. Our approach to sharing our information on this topic is “different,” and very “current,” when compared to others in our industry, something that we are very proud of, and why our programs have received 5 awards. We love what we do, and how we do it!
While others in our industry seek out police endorsements or advertise that they have or do work with law enforcement, "WE ARE" current or past law enforcement professionals and scholars that bring this experience and pedigree to all of our programs. There is a difference!
