Cyber bullying

Online gossiping, pestering, bullying, stalking, blackmail or threats.

These figures come from the Veiligheidsmonitor 2012. People over 15 years of age were asked if they had been the victims of one or more types of internet or other digitally-based crime in the 12 months before the survey. This refers to four types of crime: identity fraud (unauthorised use of personal data for financial gain), fraud in buying or selling (buying or selling goods or services without supplying or paying them), hacking (unauthorised access to someone’s computer) and cyber bullying. This article discusses various forms of cyber bulling.
