Death by Email: Responding To and Investigating Mass Emailed Threats of Violence (Webinar)

Event Dates
In 2018, mass-emailed threats of violence resulted in widespread fear and evacuations throughout the U.S. on three occasions.

These incidents can be more broadly disruptive than terrorist attacks and are increasingly being used by a variety of threat actors.

This webinar provides guidance for recognizing, coordinating response to, and investigating these threats.

The presentation also examines the profile of the threat actors and the motive behind the threats before closing with the question, "What will your agency do when these threats come to your community?"
