Press release: Safer Internet Forum 23 November 2017-11-23

Thursday, 23 November marked the 14th edition of the safer internet forum, of which the ICT Coalition was an integral part.

The event kicked off with a keynote speech from Caire Bury, Deputy Director General of DG CONNECT in the European Commission. Ms Bury outlined the importance of the international platform for internet safety, to further explore the potential risks online and how to foster a safer environment for minors online. She also identified the promotion of media literacy, critical thinking, and digital skills among young people as key priorities to be tackled.

Ms Bury’s speech was followed by a panel discussion, with representatives of industry and civil society, as well as youth panellists. ICT Coalition was well represented in the panel, with both Google and Telia Company presenting the pleasing initiatives they have taken in the setting of the Coalition and beyond. Google emphasised the importance of industry self-regulation in making the internet a safer place for minors.

The youth representatives showcased a video that the numerous young panellists from across Europe who were present at the event had collaborated on, to raise awareness of the issues faced by young people online. The video forms part of a social media campaign under the handle #TogetherForRespect, and can be visited here.

The general rule provides for a parental consent requirement for all youth under 16 years old in situations where information society services are offered directly to them, and consent is the legitimation ground that is relied upon1. However, Member States may choose to deviate and decide to lower the age threshold to 15, 14, or 13 years. In preparation for the implementation of the GDPR, national (draft) implementation acts, national consultations or guidance by Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) have been published across the EU. Although in many countries no final decisions have been taken, preliminary research into a selection of national approaches, based on official and public documents, shows that a fragmented landscape is gradually emerging.

On Wednesday 27 November, at Google’s offices in Brussels, the ICT Coalition hosted its second Forum of 2013, with an audience of both industry and civil society attendees.
In the morning, a number of the ICTC members presented new developments in their child online protection services or products (these presentations can be found on the [link] section of the website). The afternoon saw INSAFE, and then jointly ITU and UNICEF, deliver presentations on their respective initiatives. The day was concluded with Dr. Brian O’Neill, from the Centre for Social and Educational Research, Dublin Institute of Technology in Ireland.  Dr. Brian O’Neill, was appointed by the ICTC as the “Honest Broker” to carry out the first implementation review process of the ICT Coalition Principles. He presented the milestones for the delivery of his report as part of his presentation

-          Each member has already presented its individual commitments, which are available on the ICTC website.
-          Each member is currently reporting back on how these commitments have been implemented. The individual reports will be published on the ICTC website as they become available. 
-          The Honest Broker will assess the members’ reports and compare them with the initial commitments.
-          As all the reports will be publicly available, all interested parties are welcome to contact Dr O’Neill to share any comments and queries they may have.
-          Local child safety organisations may also be contacted by Dr O’Neill to gather opinions as part of the exercise.
-          The final report will be presented to the next Forum which will take place in Spring 2014

All participants have been invited to send their comments and ideas on emerging trends and topics to identify possible key topics for the ICTC to investigate in the next year.

Below you will find some of the presentations made during the day.
