Cyber Harassment: Things I wish I knew when sh1t went sideways

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Cyber harassment is a grey area in both legal and forensic capability. Protecting one’s self can feel impossible, however it is not!

Are words on the internet/emails/private messages considered harassment, seen as threatening, or just freedom of speech?

I will share the first-hand extensive knowledge on options. Life tossed me a curveball, which resulted in a life experience which lets me share how to help individuals through a series of options to be protected and for additional help.

Do not feel helpless, evidence can be gathered. Protective orders can be obtained. Individuals who have been harassed causing mental trauma have the right to file for FMLA (NOT just for babies folks!). This allows them to take the necessary time off work without having a fear of losing employment.

The options provided will include tips on how to document and obtain evidence, tips for interviewing lawyers to find an attorney that meets specialized standards for cyber, and how to reach out to get help that can protect an individual in their career.

I truly wish I knew during my experiences these options and by sharing my experiences, as long as one person is helped, then it makes my adventure worth it.
