ySafe aims to provide Australian schools with a solutions-based approach to cyber safety management. The ySafe cyber safety framework is based upon the following vision:
‘All Australian schools, families and students are provided the opportunity to access technology in a safe, informed and supported environment, and provide a solid foundation to build young peoples' capacity to navigate social media and technology safely across their lifespan’.
All solutions developed for schools are individualised to address the unique demographics of each school. The standard elements of the whole school cyber safety framework include:
- School Needs Assessment
- Policy & Documentation Development
- Intervention and Management Procedures
- Coordination of Education and Staff Up-Skilling
- School Resources and Education Tools
- Ongoing Consultation & Advice
ySafe offers online reputation assessments for schools and businesses. The purpose of the reputation assessment is to discern the nature of the school or business' online reputation, and to offer recommendations to improve online reputation.
Online reputation assessments cover areas such as:
- Student Privacy Rating
- Online School/Business Reputation
- Staff Professional Conduct
- Parent Involvement
- Online Student Behaviours
- Online Community Engagement
- Policy Information & Accessibility
ySafe offers focussed school support that is individualised depending on the needs of the school. Support can be offered in the form of consultation and advice, policy development, guidance in developing educational programs, incident response management and mediation between parents, students and the school.
Support can be provided as part of an ongoing relationship, where ySafe offers a continued partnership with the school. Schools can therefore be linked in with a Cyber Safety Expert at all times, and are able to streamline cyber safety management by redirecting cyber issues to ySafe, who will provide guidance, support and suggestions for intervention.
