Online safety

Any one of us might have a negative experience online, ranging from relatively low impact issues like mild criticism or feedback, to more damaging experiences such as cyberbulling, adult cyber abuse, image-based abuse or being scammed.

Cyber abuse [.pdf 350kB] is behaviour that uses technology to threaten, intimidate, harass or humiliate someone – with the intent to hurt them socially, psychologically or even physically.

If you have a negative experience while online, support is available.

If the cyber abuse has occurred on a Curtin controlled online platform, you can report an incident to the Safer Community Team on (08) 9266 4444 or through our online form.
