Reports indicate four Queensland schools will trial a British software product, “eSafe Global”, to combat cyberbullying.  We are progressing, but the journey is long.  The application, installed on school devices, monitors activities for specific behaviour.  While this implementation assists during school hours and somewhat after hours, it relies on exclusive use of the device.  Students also use privately owned devices such as phones, tablets, laptops, and family computers which are likely not included.  How do we secure this gap without unnecessary intrusion?  How do we address what is fundamentally a people problem, exacerbated by technology, using yet another technical control?
