Safer Internet Day 2017 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 7th February with the slogan, ‘Be the change: Unite for a better internet’.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community.

NetSupport is supporting Safer Internet Day by spreading awareness via media posts as well as supporting schools through its eSafety and Safeguarding product features. These include both proactive and reactive tools such as keyword monitoring, internet metering, safeguarding resources, student reporting concerns in confidence, webcam control, monitoring ‘at risk’ students – and much more. These safeguarding tools are supplied as part of NetSupport’s IT asset management solution for education, NetSupport DNA – a solution already helping schools to manage their IT assets, reduce operational costs and improve system security.
