Technology & Cybersafety

Our use of technology and online environments is increasing, and with it, the potential to experience unsafe behaviours such an technology-based abuse and cyber-bullying.  The e-Safety Commissioner provides a range of information and resources to assist young people, educators, parents, women and seniors to both stay safe online and understand your digital reputation.

SEX & RESPECT: IT'S ON ALL OF US

BEING AN ACTIVE BYSTANDER

If you see or hear behaviour that is not OK, you can do something to assist.If you think it's safe to do so, you can act in the moment to call out bad behaviour.

This might mean calling out at someone to stop, or telling your friend to settle down or apologise for an offensive remark. If it's not safe for you to help immediately, you might chose to call for security or emergency services, or wait and assist the victim of bad behaviour after the perpetrator has left, to make sure they are OK.

If you're not sure about the behaviour you are witnessing, just ask yourself is this OK?

You can learn more about being an effective bystander through Griffith's MATE Bystander program.
