Have you or someone you know been cyberbullied or harassed on the internet? Over 60% of teens report that they have been harassed or bullied online. Examples of this include hate speech, posting unwanted pictures to social media or other websites, threats sent over text or direct message, and many others.
When cyberbullying or online harassment occurs, there is often a lack of knowledge and widespread confusion regarding how to respond. Cyber Safeguard’s Take Action Guide was designed exactly for this purpose – to equip you with critical information to minimize confusion and provide direct steps that can be taken if and when you experience the complex issue of cyberbullying.
Also, not everyone is aware that this kind of behavior can be against the law. The CS Newswire was created to inform individuals about news and legislative updates in real-time so you can stay up to date on federal and state laws related to cyberbullying and online harassment.
The majority of students bring their phones or other devices to school and use them to communicate with parents and friends throughout the school day. As this has become a normal way to connect at school, some students will utilize phones or devices as a form of bullying. When this occurs at school, school events, or on school property, the resolution of the behavior often becomes a school responsibility. This has created a need for school districts to teach students about the harms of cyberbullying, inform parents of this growing phenomenon, and keep administration informed on current laws that exist relating to cyberbullying and online harassment. Cyber Safeguard’s Education & Compliance Program meets all of these needs in a simple yet comprehensive format.
