Cybersecurity and Cyber Safety Awareness – Educator Webinar

27 February 2019 - 28 February 2019

Through the DigtalDASH Initiative ICTC is working to produce Webinars focused on providing educators skills to bring Digital Literacy Lessons into their classrooms across Canada.

Speaker: Matt Richardson, Cybersecurity and Internet Safety Expert
Matt Richardson is an expert on internet safety, cyber respect, and building a positive online image (among others). His clients include; numerous schools and community agencies, Belleville Children’s Safety Village, First Nation’s communities, CFB Trenton Military Family Resource Centre, and a large school board where as a consultant he designs e-learning modules and teacher resources. He is often sought out as a subject matter expert by the media with appearances and writing credits across Canada and the U.S. Matt began teaching personal safety skills in 2013 and in 2014 completed an Ontario Police College credential in “Open Source Intelligence” (OSINT), shortly after launching his first online safety programs. His background working in politics and the provincial and federal civil service and OSINT experience give him a unique and fulsome perspective which has resulted in programs that cover the full spectrum of online safety and digital well-being”. In 2019 Matt founded the “Digital Empowerment Project” (Canada) in partnership with a retired Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) investigator for the Ohio State ICAC Task Force.
