Telenor Supports Internet Safety Trainings

Telenor Supports Internet Safety Trainings

Over 120 children have successfully passed the online safety trainings organised by the Safer Internet Centre with the support of Telenor and the Ministry of Interior. The initiative was held among students from 5th and 6th grade in five cities: Shumen, Targovisthe, Vidin, Pleven and Smolyan.

The aim of the Cyberscout Programme was to increase the awareness of children and teachers of the potential risks on the Internet and the ways to overcome them. School students who participated in the kids’ police academies acquired practical skills how to protect themselves online. Telenor will award the most active participants aiming to encourage their efforts.

Telenor support for the Cyberscout Programme is part of the company’s long-term commitment to offer safe access to Internet and mobile content. Each year Telenor conducts an information campaign which targets the most vulnerable group of Internet users – children, as well as their parents.

As part of its partnership with the Safer Internet Centre, Telenor also supported the realisation of the Field Clinic for Children’s Mobile Devices initiative which was held this year in Sofia and Gorna Oryahovitsa. Within the campaign, children and parents were advised how to avoid inappropriate content and how to communicate safely on the Web via mobile devices.

At the end of 2014 Telenor was the first telecom in Bulgaria which launched a filter that blocks web domains containing child sexual abuse materials. In 2011 the company supported the launch of the first Bulgarian hotline for online safety which offers consultation on issues related to the safety of young people on the Internet.
