Why you should attend this summit:
Trans Disciplinary Approach:
It is time to stop, put down our devices, close our laptops, take a long deep breath and do something that we humans are good at. We need to think. For too long we have focused on the Internet as a diet of data, devices, and tech experts. Now it’s time to turn our focus to the greater socio-technological implications. We must look at human behaviour, the good and the bad. And we need to start talking more – and looking for answers and solutions.
The best approach is trans disciplinary. The human migration to cyberspace has been unprecedented and rapid. We need to stop expecting individuals to manage all things cyber for themselves or their families. Science, industry, governments, communities, and families need to come together to create a road map for society going forward.The program covers topics such as Cyber Harassment, Cyber Bullying, Cyber Stalking and Discriminatory Behaviour
- Workplaces Must Act – In a hyper-connected world, your organization’s online safety, health & well-being and reputation should be a priority. Workplace borders are now blurred. Do you know how you can keep your employees safe, whilst using technology? Workplaces have a significant role and responsibility….What is your workplace doing to protect your organisation and employees?
- No Borders – Workplaces Now Without Borders… The duty placed on employers by workplace health and safety legislation is that all employees must provide a healthy and safe working environment which supports both the physical and mental health of their workforce. Technology-enabled abuse can be life threatening. Cyber abuse in the workplace destroys the careers of victims and impacts the bottom line of organisations.
- Abuse Enabling – What is Technology Enabled Abuse? Technology enabled abuse is the use of technology (such as the internet, social media, mobile phones, computers, and surveillance devices) to perpetuate abusive behaviour against a person. Such behaviour includes; to threaten, intimidate, control, abuse, harass, punish, stalk and humiliate.
- Safety – Technology and Workplace Health and Safety… Attitudes towards online abuse have undergone a sea change over the last decade but are this change moving fast enough to keep up with technological changes and online behaviours? Victims cannot and should not have to wrestle with technology enabled abuse on their own, To date, the law has had a modest impact on cyber abuse, in part due to troubling social attitudes. What must your workplace do to keep your employees safe and where does your duty of care begin and end in this new frontier? In the past, cyber harassment – often a perfect storm of threats, impersonations, defamation, and privacy invasions directed at an individual – was routinely dismissed as ‘no big deal’. But there is new evidence that this abusive online behaviour exposes your organisation to workers compensation claims, litigation, reputational damage and more…
- Gender – Technology Abuse and Gender… Sadly, workplace sexual harassment and domestic violence still affect lives and arguably laws still do not go far enough to stop these destructive behaviours. We’re now seeing this whole new dimension of workplace abuse being added to the equation..Technology Enabled Abuse….what is your organisation doing about it? The use of Technology allows perpetrators the ability to infiltrate the homes and workplaces of individuals, intentionally compromising their psychological health and well-being. What can you do to help your organisation and its employees to stay safe?
