On November 19th Sisler’s Digital Voice students (www.digitalvoices.ca) and Cyber Defence students are scheduled to deliver a powerful online video conference. The goal of this 2-part presentation is to EDUCATE viewers on:

Cyber-SECURITY, Cyber-SAFETY, Cyber-ETHICS and Mental Health Awareness

With a partnership with MediaSmarts, this live interactive event is expected to capture thousands of viewers across Canada and the United States. In the first part of the 2-part presentation, viewers will be educated on: Responsibility, Protecting your Digital Information, Cybercrimes (illegal downloads, cyber bullying, sexting) as well as the consequences both for the bully and the victim. This session will be followed by a short video titled ‘Kitchen’.

The second part of the presentation will be on ‘Mental Health Awareness’ with special guest Carol Todd. Carol was the mother of Amanda Todd, a young girl who was lured into a bad decision by a cyber-staker and then relentlessly targeted online and in real life over and over again until she took her own life in October 2012.

I have been looking across these topics for quite sometime. Two objectives, digital responsibility as observed by user in a professional environment was considered to be in place by network administrator and directly related to the job/role responsibilities; though I have heard that the users are smarter than the enforcers, thus corrupting the system.The other objective is directly related to personal users of internet by children, adolescents and a poorly defined vulnerable segment of the population.

Tips to browse safely is promoted by the browser developers, though I am uncertain of its influence in modifying behaviour as opposed to a disclaimer.

Is there a way in which awareness about the optimal use of internet be promoted and of of-course evolving continuously and customizing it to the local laws.

Creating learning modules using Creative Cloud could lend to the CSR image.

Any takers?

Thanks for reading.
