Today Netsafe is launching New Zealand’s first dedicated online safety awareness week.
“We are hosting Netsafety Week to inspire positive change and help the community stay safe online in response to the alarming levels of harm we continue to see,” said Netsafe CEO Martin Cocker.
“I’m proud to say hundreds of schools, businesses and agencies have united to create a better internet. Together we will share information about the ways to make online spaces safe and reinforce where to get help if things don’t pan out.”
Netsafe is marking the day itself by:
- Releasing The State of the Online Nation study to understand the community’s awareness towards online safety
- Sharing dedicated resources for school leaders, teachers and students
- Giving young people the opportunity to share their best online safety tips and be in to win
“Please feel free to use and share any of the dedicated resources housed on the Netsafety Week website,” added Cocker. “They have been created to start a kōrero about online safety and include key messages, graphics and much more.
“Communities are safest when we look out for each other, and week’s like this are a good reminder of what we can achieve together. You can join in the activity using #Netsafetywk21 and follow @netsafenz on social media to keep up with our updates.”
