Online Abuse: Mitigation & Survival
Part of our Privacy & Security Workshop series. The Internet is a wonderful place where we can access almost any information in a moment’s notice. Many of us use it to stay in touch with colleagues, friends and loved ones around the world. Unfortunately, the opposite is often true: certain offenders will use it to stay in touch with victims via harassment, cyber stalking and leaking revenge porn. We hope you never find yourself the target of any of this traumatizing behavior. But we want to be sure you know what to do to protect yourself ahead of time and know what to do if you ever find yourself in this position. Many women and minorities may find they are at a higher risk for this.
