ITU to lead a panel discussion on online safeguarding
Protecting children online is a global challenge, which requires a global approach. While many efforts to improve child online protection are already under way, their reach has been more national than global. ITU launched the Child Online Protection (COP) Initiative in November 2008 as a multi-stakeholder effort within the Global Cybersecurity Agenda (GCA) framework. The initiative brings together partners from all sectors of the global community to create a safe and empowering online experience for children around the world. The Key Objectives of COP is to Identify risks and vulnerabilities to children in cyberspace, Create awareness, Develop practical tools to help minimize online risks and Share knowledge and experience.
ITU, in partnership with EFDN and Scort Foundation, will lead a panel discussions on the challenges and future of child online protection.
