Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Dr Yee Moh Chai has called for proper measures to be put in place to safeguard users, particularly children from the possible dangers of the Internet as internet adoption accelerates and accessibility increases both at home and in schools.

Proper internet safeguard for children

He said although the government was aware that technology acts as an important enabler and platform to deliver the inclusive national transformation it desired, there was a need to ensure a family-friendly and safe internet experience.

“The Internet can enrich our knowledge but at the same time, uncontrolled use of the internet might lead to cyber crimes that target children,” he said when launching the first DiGI CyberSAFR workshop at Sekolah Menengah Sains Kota Kinabalu in Luyang, near here yesterday.

More than 500 students and 100 educators from 31 schools in Sabah gathered at the school to learn how they could protect themselves against cyber crimes as part of the nationwide DiGi CyberSAFE programme.
As such, Yee said there was a need for strong public-private partnerships as well as a concerted effort amongst government agencies, civil society and the media at both the state and federal government levels.
He said the DiGI CyberSAFE programme was a good example of a strategic partnership that helped 
address the important national issue of online child safety. — Bernama

Yee said based on CyberSecurity Malaysia’s data, more than 17 million Malaysians use internet everyday.
The DiGi CyberSAFE programme, a strategic collaboration between the Ministry of Education, CyberSecurity Malaysia, Childline Malaysia, Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission and DiGi Telecommunications, aimed at raising awareness of online child safety and equipping stundents, parents and teachers with the right tools to ensure a secure and positive internet experience. – Bernama

  3. The parents should ensure their kids are using the internet for the right purpose such as researching for their studies and useful websites. Not for porn or illegal downloads.

  4. Younger kids should not be allowed to use social networking websites as they could be exposed to stalkers, cybercriminals and others.

  7. memandangkan penggunaan ICT semakin berkembang, eloklah jika pihak kerajaan terutamanya kementerian pendidikan dapat menyerapkan mata pelajaran ICT ini di semua peringkat sekolah.. secara tidak langsung, pihak sekolah juga akan sama2 bertanggungjawab dalam memberikan kesedaran tentang dunia ICT terutamanya berkenenaan dengan kesan baik dan buruknya..
