Government Announces Development of Internet Safety Strategy

Government has today announced the development of a new Internet Safety Strategy which is aimed at making Britain the safest country in the world for children and young people to be online.

The Internet Safety Strategy will be led by Culture Secretary Karen Bradley and developed through a cross-Government drive involving ministers and officials from departments across Government including the Home Office, Department for Education, Department of Health and Ministry of Justice.

In addition to a report commissioned from Professor Sonia Livingstone, a series of round tables will take place with social media companies, technology firms, young people, charities and mental health experts examining online risks and how to tackle them.

The work is expected to centre on four main priorities: how to help young people help themselves; helping parents face up the dangers and discuss them with children; industry’s responsibilities to society; and how technology can help provide solutions.

A green paper is expected in the summer.
