In the wake of a case of cyberbullying at Norwich against a number of students, top officials at the university have launched an investigation into the situation.
According to a university statement, “No official reports of criminal behavior have been made, and law enforcement is not involved in the investigation.”
But Norwich’s Vice President for Student Affairs, Frank Vanecek, and. Peter Stephenson, chief information security officer at Norwich, both confirmed to the Guidon that a probe is taking place into harassing comments made on the social app Yik Yak.
Yik Yak allows users to post comments anonymously but it requires a cell phone number and, said Stephenson, users are not truly anonymous. “Nothing ever goes away on the Internet,” said Stephenson, adding that “Given the time and the resources, I can track anybody.”
