INCIBE and IS4K promoted the event and asked their Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube followers to join SID 2023 with the hashtags #SID2023 and #D√≠aDeInternetSegura. Moreover, the SIC-Spain project partners contributed to the dissemination and impact of SID by carrying out awareness-raising activities about their participation in the celebrations.

What we are doing to create a better internet...

For Safer Internet Day 2024, the Spanish National Cybersecurity Institute (INCIBE), through the Spanish Safer Internet Centre 'Internet Segura for Kids (IS4K)', will organise celebrations and learning activities around 6 February 2024 under the general motto 'Together for a better internet', especially focused on the development of cybersecurity and online safety digital skills for the appropriate growth and development of children on the digital environment.

About us

Internet Segura for Kids (IS4K) is the Safer Internet Centre (SIC) of Spain, with the purpose of fostering a safe and responsible use of the internet and technology among children and teenagers. Its main goals are: 

  • Raising awareness and training minors, young people, families, educators and professionals working with minors through the development of national campaigns, initiatives and programmes.
  • Offering a helpline service to advise and assist minors, families, educators and professionals working with minors on how to face risks on the internet: harmful contents, dangerous contacts and inappropriate behaviours.
  • Organising Safer Internet Day (SID) in Spain.
  • Boosting the Spanish Youth Panel to show how children and adolescents can help in creating a safer internet through cyber security and the responsible use of the network, looking for positive opportunities to create, participate and share useful content for everyone.
  • Operating a Hotline, in order to reduce the availability of criminal content on the internet, mainly related to child abuse, giving support to law enforcement agencies.

IS4K is led by the Spanish National Cybersecurity Institute (INCIBE, as per the Spanish acronym). Since 2023, INCIBE also leads and coordinates the SIC-SPAIN 3.0 project in collaboration with other Spanish reference entities, which also contributes to disseminating the SID program of activities. This project is co-financed by the European Union (EU) through the financing programme Digital Europe.
