The Legal Fight Against Cyber-Bullying

child laptop cell phone Bigstock

In last week’s Law Journal, our firm contributed an article defining the new law on cyber-harassment. In this edition, let’s discuss another escalating problem that is similar to cyber-harassment—cyber-bullying.

Cyber-bullying is defined as communications or postings by minor(s) on social or digital media or using cyber-technology to threaten, hurt, embarrass, intimidate or target another minor. Bullies use a variety of electronic devices to bully minors such as cell phones, email, text messages, social networking sites or websites. Bullying involves an imbalance of power and/or strength.

Victims of cyber-bullying can be bullied online at any time, day or night. Internet postings can be viewed by a vast audience and may be difficult to remove. (See https://www.stopbullying.gov/cyberbullying/what-is-it/index.html.) The effects of being cyber-bullied could include depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, isolation, suicidal thoughts or suicide.

Dozens of cyber attacks target UAE Government and companies in January

Cyber attacks against Government organisations and private company websites fell by three-quarters last month according to a new report.

According to the Telecommunications Regulations Authority, hackers targeted 34 websites in January compared with 136 attacks in January 2017.

The TRA said its emergency response team had quantified the attacks as including eight breaches of data, three attempts to block or deface websites and 16 cases of what it called “fraudulent offences.”

If the trend were to continue, it would be a rare sign of good news in an increasingly challenging environment for cyber security both in the UAE and worldwide.

The latest Norton Security Insights Report, published last month, claimed that cyber criminals stole almost Dh4 billion from victims in the UAE during 2017.

The report estimated more than half the adult population had been victims, with each losing an average of Dh669 and spending six days dealing with the fall out.

LETTER: Cyber bullying a problem behind keyboard

Cyber bullying … social media mobs, people hiding behind keyboards saying slanderous, mean and cruel things about people that many times they do not even know … thinking that no one will know who they are and that no one will hold them accountable … that’s what makes them so brave.

They seem to forget or do not care that they are saying hurtful and slanderous things against actual people, effecting their lives and their livelihood.

There are laws against these things, most victims just want it to go away so stay silent — like most victims of crimes do — so the bullies go on to their next victims.

People who have been victims of this, who are brave enough to stand up and hold the “mobbing” are rare but thankfully there are some, perhaps once some are held to the standard of the law, this behavior
