Schools must become pro-active, not reactive, in making staff and teachers aware of the dangers of social media and technology use for their own sake and that of their students.
Preventing staff and teachers from posting inappropriate comments or photos online takes more than written policy and procedure. Stopping these posts before they occur requires building a culture of people who understand the risks and stop and think before they post. Properly training employees and bringing awareness to them is a necessary component in keeping them from making mistakes that will cause a major liability.
"We can’t stop staff and employees from being careless with sensitive information, but we can create a culture of employees who are aware of the risks involved in the use of social media."
Social Media and Identity Theft. Not so common sense.
Attendees Will Learn:
• Statistics (% of social media users, online identity theft, data breaches, etc.)
• Real world examples of social media posts that created liability.
• Discussion on key information to remove from Facebook in order to prevent identity theft. • Steps to keeping your staff safe and managing the risk of a liability.
• Apps and tools students are using for sexting and cyberbullying.

Our cutting edge staff development training is designed to educate and entertain. This training will make an impact on your staff by changing their thinking, changing their behavior, and reducing their risk of falling victim to identity theft and hurting their reputation through social media. Your employees represent your company on and offline. You must train them on how to represent the values of your organization.
In order for this training to be effective, we recommend a top-down approach. Train your staff and teachers first on these topics and then present the same information to your students in an engaging format that will change their thinking, change their behavior, and manage their risk.
We have done extensive market research and there is one Reputation Management and Identity Theft Monitoring and Restoration product we recommend that stands above the rest for the price and the level of service.
IDShield provides monitoring for your identity being bought and sold on the black market as well as restores your identity to a pre-theft condition if it is stolen. That is not even the best part. IDShield assists with reputation management. It will alert you or a friend has posted something on your social media or tagged you in something that could potentially harm your reputation.
