In a modern ecosystem, your experience in the natural world is highly affected by technology with the cyber space forming an inevitable part of it. This has introduced a whole new range of digital devices and communication channels to your life, some of these are very useful that you probably cannot imagine your daily activities without using them; think about emails, word-editors on your PC or taking a selfie (self-portrait photograph) using the high-resolution camera in your mobile phone. However, this very same technology has unfortunately been used in delicate attacks against you, with Cyberstalking being one of many extreme examples of the risk you may have to face. The good news is: help is at hand! Further to the psychosocial support you can get while going through this very difficult time, it is vital that you liaise with the police to build a case when the law has been broken if you decide to pursue a prosecution.
