No 2 Bullying Conference
The 2015 No 2 Bullying Conference will be held on the 29-30 June 2015 at the Outrigger Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast.
The Conference program includes over 60 presenters addressing Bullying Policy, Prevention and Management Strategies in schools, workplaces and cyberspace.
You will hear from Mr Jarrod Sierocki, Director at Insolvency Guardian, who will share his experience with Cyber Bullying – The Fastest Growing Faceless Crime.
Jarrod will discuss cyber bullying, it’s effects based upon his own story which spanned almost three years. This included, suing the individuals who engaged in the cyber bullying as well as those who allowed it to remain posted.
This case among many really highlights the dangers of cyber bullying at its worst. Cyber bullying is the “fastest growing faceless crime” of which anyone with access to a computer can say or do anything they like under any name they choose, using the power of the internet to bully you.
Jarrod will briefly discuss the evolution of cyber bullying and the lack of regulation surrounding the internet which has led to the rise of cyber bullying over traditional bullying.
That in itself has many issues because of the rate of growth in technology over the past 10 years and the rate of which our law makers can keep up. Because of the rate of growth, there is no way to police and hold these bullies accountable as we would in a traditional sense.
