(KSL News) Technology and business experts helped families and children arm themselves against cyberbullies today.

Cyberbullies use the Internet to harass, demean or even stalk people online. Utah First Lady Mary Kaye Huntsman said the impact of cyberbullying on children is as real as that of the traditional schoolyard bully.

"We've heard so many stories of children being bullied on cyberspace, and sometimes it goes as far as causing a suicide because they can't take it anymore."

There's information available from the First Lady's Power in You organization to protect your children from cyberbullies.
