Linda Criddle – President LOOKBOTHWAYS
Linda Criddle is founder of LOOKBOTHWAYS, LLC.

The depth and breadth of Linda’s online safety expertise is reflected in her collaboration with LOOKBOTHWAYS’ Chief Technology Officer, David Milstein, in the creation and filing of numerous patents on behalf of Microsoft in the areas of emerging technologies and online safety. Criddle and Milstein have continued this collaboration with multiple patent filings for LOOKBOTHWAYS.
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 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. She also works with government organizations in the U.S. and around the world to prepare online safety regulations and legislation.
Criddle is also the past president of the Safe Internet Alliance whose mission is to promote a safe Internet, and better educate and protect all users, especially children, teens and the elderly, from online exploitation.
