The White Hatter is a family-owned and operated multi-award-winning social media safety, security, privacy, and digital literacy company based in Victoria British Columbia Canada. At the time of writing this web book, we have presented to over half a million students from across Canada and the United States. What makes us very unique is the multidisciplinary approach we bring to all our presentations. The White Hatter team is comprised of current and retired law enforcement, licensed online investigators, white hat hackers, trained counselors, social media academics, online privacy experts, IT specialists, coders, and social media super users. We pride ourselves on being “evidence-based” educators. As a company, we also strategically align ourselves with other experts in the field of digital literacy. If we don’t know the answer to a question specific to the onlife world, we know someone who does. Here’s a link to our website:
Our programs are not just about social media and internet safety, they are also about digital literacy and the challenges surrounding privacy (our “digital dossier”), cyber-bullying, sexting, and what we can do to protect our digital dossier so that our current onlife activities do not have a negative outcome on future college, university or job opportunities.
When it comes to the internet and social media safety, we believe that education is the first step in keeping everyone safer in this technology-driven world. Our presentations are designed to provide participants with pro-active online critical thinking and decision-making strategies that can immediately be put to good use. Knowledge and the understanding and application of that knowledge is power. Our social media safety and digital literacy presentations provide that knowledge and information, based upon experience and academically peer-reviewed research, that tweens, teens, young adults, and older adults need to know to stay safer while participating in this onlife world. We love what we do, how we do it, and why we do it!
