Safer Internet Day 2018 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 6th February with the theme, “Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you”.

Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised by the joint Insafe-INHOPE network, supported by the European Commission and with funding provided by the Connecting Europe Facility programme (CEF). The celebration sees hundreds of organisations getting involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. Safer Internet 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. The day also encourages people to engage with others in a respectful way in order to ensure a better digital experience.

NetSupport is championing Safer Internet Day by spreading awareness on social media 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, students 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.
