Digital Strategy shows UK a world leader in Child Internet Safety

The UK Government this morning launched the UK Digital Strategy which sets out Government’s plans on how it will build on the UK’s success to date to develop a world-leading digital economy that works for everyone. 

Part 5 of the Strategy covers Child Internet Safety - acknowledging that the “UK is a world leader in child internet safety” and highlighting the UK’s “strong track record in working with the internet industries to drive progress.”

The Strategy identifies the good work of the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS), the requirements for age verification controls for access to online pornographic material provided on a commercial basis in the UK, and the continued collaboration with industry through the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) and WePROTECT initiative in developing technology to tackle online child sexual exploitation.

In Culture Secretary Karen Bradley's speech launching the UK Digital Strategy, she also referenced the development of the new Internet Safety Strategy which is aimed at making Britain the safest country in the world for children and young people to be online.
