What to do if you are a victim of cyberbullying or cyberlibel – Part 2

In this posting, I will provide tips to adults and businesses that are being cyber-libelled. Anyone can be made a target of online defamation, with devastating consequences to one’s personal and professional reputation. Indeed, at its worst, cyber-libel can bring an individual or business to the brink of bankruptcy.

What to do if you are a victim of cyberbullying or cyberlibel – Part 1

In last month’s posting, I wrote about the tragic case of Rehteah Parsons, the Nova Scotia teenager who took her own life after being cyberbullied. I have since received requests for some of my readers for advice on what to do if you are a victim of cyberbullying. I will respond to this request in two postings. The first is meant for parents of children who are being cyberbullied. The second, which will appear in next month’s posting, is meant for adults that are victims of cyberlibel or cyberbullying. This information can also help businesses take steps to support employees and manage the risk of cyberlibel or cyberbullying in their organizations.
