As our dependency and use of technology increases, we rely on electronic devices to complete many daily activities. Unfortunately, these same technologies are being seen more and more in family law cases where offenders have identified ways to exploit them in order to facilitate harm towards their victims and co-parents alike.

In this CLE program, Steven Bradley will explore the risks and benefits of technology, not only for the clients we serve, but also for you in your personal and professional lives. Attendees will learn safety planning and evidence collection strategies for phone technology, location apps, social media, and more. Non-technical language will be used throughout the presentation and how to safely navigate the world of technology.

The program will assist attendees in:

  • Recognizing the types of technology used to monitor, harass and abuse,
  • Describe evidence collection strategies for text messages and social networking posts,
  • Identify strategies for safety planning around technology, and
  • Implement the top three security settings for mobile devices.
