1 in 5 children have experiencing bullying online

posted in Cyber-SecurityCyber-Security ● 14 Aug 2013

A recent report by the NSPCC showed that 1 in 5 children have been bullied online. The sort of bullying experienced ranged from cyber stalking to unwanted sexual attention. However only 1 in 10 victims feel confident to report the bullying to a trusted parent or adult.This demonstrates a worrying landscape for children today. One of the perturbing features of online bullying is that it is difficult for an adult to detect, and stop the behavior. Redstor’s E-Safety application can monitor behavior on a device within an organisation.   E-Safety will alert staff to swearing, hurtful comments, online bullying, harmful or worrying websites and other safeguarding concerns, allowing the staff to demonstrate a proactive duty of care.The intelligent device can alert the e-safety adviser based on selected key words and phrases, even if the message is not actually delivered. Therefore if a child is typing out harmful messages to another, but not sending them,a proactive effort can still be taken to stop the bullying. In addition, e-safety can also look after a vulnerable child. For instance, if the child is searching for ways to harm themselves online, the use of selected words will trigger an alert to the e-safety adviser to allow them to help the child.Please visit our E-Safety page to find out more: https://redstor.com/esafety.html, or download the E-safety data sheet: https://redstor.com/downloads/Redstor_E-Safety_Datasheet.pdf.
