Have you ever been a victim of cyber hostility? Technological advancements, such as the advent of TikTok, Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook, have changed the way we lead our lives and have also changed the way bullying has occurred. These online platforms allow perpetrators to hide behind a mask of anonymity and yet provide them with a viral means to spread fake news, harass, stalk and even sexually intimidate their victims. In this talk, find out how to recognise acts of cyber bullying, the current legal remedies available and how to be an effective first responder. Let’s do our part to make the internet a safer place!
