Cyber exploitation and violence (CEV) is when someone is bullied, blackmailed, threatened, discriminated, and/or coerced, online. This includes the non-consensual distribution or publication of intimate photos or videos online, as well as any other material via memes and edited images. Terms such as Revenge Porn, Girlfriend Porn, Collecting and Exchanging Nudes, Slut Shaming, Sexploitation, may also be forms of CEV. There is also an emerging concern around the burgeoning girlfriend/amateur pornography industry, and how victims of CEV are ending up on porn sites and subsequently shared on whatsapp groups, including school classes, sports and society groups. The session will also cover how to most sensibly prevent and report CEV in Sri Lanka.
