Cyber Safety in the Digital Space
You truly understand the importance of Cyber Safety only when you are faced with the threatening facts of it. The consequences of cyberbullying can lead to mental health issues, increased stress and anxiety, depression, acting out violently, low self-esteem and suicide.
The COVID 19 pandemic has made the issue even more detrimental. Global blockades have made our new “normal” more dependent on digital platforms. As connectivity improves, the world is also facing the downside of escalation of cyber harassment, such as cyberstalking, online impersonation, catfishing, doxxing, swatting, trolling, and revenge porn.
Revenge Porn or Non-consensual pornography is an activity of sharing someone’s intimate photos or videos online without permission as a form of revenge and purpose to ruin the victim’s life in the real world or to humiliate the victim.
Through understanding the meaning behind revenge porn, society is needed to become a part of an ally to show support, encourage the victim, care about the victim’s mental health by helping to seek professional help, and helping them in going through a legal process as their final step to fight their revenge porn case.
