Irish Teens are more likely to be subjected to Cyber-Bullying

Cyberbullying is on the rise and a recent survey tells us that Irish teens are more likely to be the victim of Cyberbullying than teens in other countries, but why? Are we brushing this issue under the carpet? are we pretending that it is not a problem?

Did you know more that 1 in 4 teens Irish will be bullied online?

Did you know that 45% of those being Cyber-bullied felt hopeless and did not know who to turn to?

Cyber-Bullying is a real issue and we need to work together to address this now, not later.

3 and 1/2 years ago I had the pleasure of meeting with and spending a few days in the company of the worlds leading expert in Digital Privacy, Cyber wellness and Cyberlaw, Parry Aftab (Have a look at the wonderful work that she does here)

Parry is one of few real experts in this area, it has been her passion and work for more than 23 years, she has created cyber awareness throughout the world and she works tirelessly to help and protect children.

Over the coming months I will be working with Parry and her charity Wired Safety to raise awareness in many areas of Cyber Safety including :

Protecting yourself online

Cyber Stalking

Cyber bullying

Meeting Strangers Offline

Sextortion

Cyberlaw

and many other area’s of Cyber wellness

Under the guidance of Parry and her team we will bring to Ireland

  • Help and support for victims of cyberbullying, cyberabuse, cybercrime and harassment

  • Advice, Training and Help for law enforcement worldwide on preventing, spotting and investigating cybercrimes

  • Education for children, parents, communities, law enforcement and educators on cybersafety issues;

  • Information and awareness on all aspects of online safety, privacy, responsible use and security

  • Resources that can be downloaded or printed and used for offline presentations, community events and classroom activities
