Founded in 2010, Cybersmile has grown to become the worlds leading anti cyberbullying non-profit organization. Registered as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization in the U.S and as a registered charity in the U.K – Cybersmile provides expert support, resources and consultancy to individuals, governments, corporations and educational institutions around the world.
Cybersmile’s educational programs, support services and messages of hope and positivity reach millions of people around the world each year, whilst maintaining our core values of integrity, equality and compassion – the Cybersmile hallmark.
They mission is a simple one; they believe that everyone should be able to enjoy being part of the new connected online world. Regular and productive use of the Internet has become essential to a healthy social and personal development.
Unfortunately, cyberbullying and digital abuse is increasing, holding many back from enjoying the benefits that this connected community can provide. Our current online environment lacks the balance and social rules of engagement that have been cultivated over generations, governing the behavior and relationships in the communities where we live, play and work – the physical world.
Policing, monitoring and internet restrictions can only go so far, although useful additions to any internet safety policy, they are not adequate substitutes for a thorough understanding of cyberbullying and its related issues such as digital citizenship, netiquette, personal security and emotional intelligence.
