Cases of bullying have become more serious from the use of information and communication technologies, especially with an immersion in social networks—creating the situation of cyberbullying. The objectives of our study are to analyze the relationship between cyber-victims and cyber-aggressors with respect to the use of Information and communication technology (ICT) and, finally, to identify the distribution by sex, type of center, and academic level of cases of cyber-bullying. The results we obtained show a significant relationship between cybervictims and the lack of parental supervision. Men are frequent aggressors within sexual cyberbullying, while women are equally aggressors in terms of identity usurpation, ignoring or marginalizing a partner especially in urban centers with no connection to academic level. In short, prevention policies must be incorporated into the classroom with the participation of students and teachers in order to mitigate this type of behavior in schools.
