Czech Safer Internet Centre - CZ.NIC Association
About our SID activities
On the occasion of Safer Internet Day 2023, we have prepared a handbook with tips on how to celebrate and organise this day in cooperation with the JSNS, helplines of Linka bezpečí and Dětské krizové centrum, the Police of the Czech Republic, and the Palacký University in Olomouc.
In cooperation with the Ministry of the Interior, we will organise an expert panel on this day at the Experience Magenta Center, OC Arkády Pankrác, Prague 4, focusing on the following topics: increasing cybercrime as a phenomenon; internet security - prevention of increasing cybercrime; increasing digital competences; and the role media and media education in connection with the prevention of cybercrime. It will be possible to participate in the conference both in person and via online stream.
On this day, members of the Youth Panel will introduce new comic characters who will introduce followers to the pitfalls of the cyber world and give advice on the Instagram profile of the Safer Internet Centre CZ.
What we are doing to support the SID 2023 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…
We cooperate with various actors, disseminate our outputs and knowledge openly and free of charge, coordinate meetings of stakeholders (Advisory Board) and youth (Youth Panel), create awareness and educational campaigns and resources, run a hotline and/or are actively involved in European activities such as the Insafe and INHOPE networks.
In addition, as the operator of the national CERT/SCIRT team, we connect expertise in the field of cyber security with issues of protection of children and youth on the internet. Last but not least, we are succeeding in gaining important partners and personalities for the topic of a safe internet for all, for example in the form of MEP Dita Charanzová, the Vice-President of the European Parliament. MEP Charanzová actively communicates and disseminates safer internet issues throughout various channels and has been cooperating with us for a long time in general.
What we are doing to mark the 20th anniversary of Safer Internet Day…
