Join MAMAS at our next monthly brown bag lunch to learn the best practical ways to keep your kids safe online without creating unnecessary fear. Our speaker is Linda Criddle, the founder of LOOKBOTHWAYS, LLC. Before establishing the company, Criddle spent 13 years at Microsoft where she was a pioneer in online safety for the MSN division and more broadly for the entire company due to her deep understanding of online predatory behavior and her ability to create practical, technical, and policy-based solutions.

Criddle is a tireless advocate for online safety. Her passion and talent for teaching Internet safety principles has benefited youth, parents, and educators, law enforcement and corporations. She is author of the award-winning consumer-oriented book, Look Both Ways: Help Protect Your Family on the Internet, and Using the Internet Safely for Seniors For Dummies. Criddle has also contributed a chapter titled How to say YES to your kids’ online activities in the book Courageous Parents, Confident Kids, and she has written “Internet Safety for Educators,” a distance-learning course offered through Washington State University and through the University of Alaska. Criddle has also collaborated with local, state, national and international law enforcement agencies, primarily helping with investigations into the online activities of child predators, and teaching digital forensics.

We encourage you to attend our brown bag meeting in person to facilitate both networking and a lively discussion.
