CyberHound uses Sixth Sense Technology to provide school leaders with Actionable Intelligence. This comes from enhanced visibility and insight into internet and network-based activities that provide key risk indicators.
Actionable Intelligence gives schools the ability to see risks for students before they escalate, enabling better and more efficient support to be provided in a timely manner and ultimately helps school leaders save time by using evidence-based triggers to deliver a comprehensive analysis of online communication and behavioral trends
The CyberHound solution has already been able to stop a sexual predator from outside the school contacting a
student on their school-provided laptop. The reporting and alerting system has proved invaluable in bringing
these unwanted advances to our attention for us to action.

Identifying Students at Risk
CyberHound’s Sixth Sense Technology analyses and identifies online patterns of behaviour that can provide insight to a school leader. Information is provided via alerts (for serious issues) and reports that provide summary information that can be drilled into. The reporting and alerting is set up at implementation time and can be easily adjusted by the CyberHound Managed Services team or by customers directly.
The platform can identify risks across a variety of student welfare threats. This includes:
- Extremism & radicalisation
- Gender slurs
- Predatory behaviour
- Use of extreme profanity
- Eating disorders
Enabling Behavioural Intervention
The introduction of behavioural analytics adds a new dimension of intelligence and insight for school leaders so they can intervene, control and provide support where necessary. Many leading schools have embedded these capabilities into their overall student wellbeing and support programs.
CyberHound experts can help schools implement a best practice framework and customise this for any specific needs.
CyberHound’s Behavioural Analytics helps schools seamlessly identify risks for students so that appropriate care can be provided in a timely manner. With this Actionable Intelligence, schools save time in providing the best student welfare support available.
CyberHound has allowed Year Coordinators to monitor student internet and social media usage. This knowledge has helped them to tailor Pastoral programs which focus on helping students to construct an ethical digital footprint and safe use of technology.
