EVENTS: Safer Internet Day 2012 (TURKEY)

At Insafe, we are always happy to hear of the work of third countries (i.e. those outside of the Insafe network of the 27 EU member states plus Iceland, Norway and Russia) in terms of their online safety actions. Here, we learn about a new safer internet service in Turkey… 

The Safer Internet Service project in Turkey has been launched to protect children and youth from harmful content on the internet. It is currently one of the most considerable projects in Turkey and, while developing the service, the regulation requests and complaints of internet users to the Information Technologies and Communication Agency have been taken in consideration. On 28 August 2011, following technical studies with relevant industries “principles and procedures concerning a safer internet service” was determined by the Turkish Information Technologies and Communication Agency.
