Guest speakers at #MakeITSafePH Webinar

Globe is helping in keeping children safe from online abuse and exploitation

In line with this, the company is having a webinar that aims to increase awareness and encourage sustained action towards the protection of children against online sexual abuse and exploitation.  Allegedly, the online event will be attended by key stakeholders and multi-sectoral partners. 

Led by UNICEF, the webinar is going to focus on online Sexual Abuse and Exploitation of Children (OSAEC) in the Philippines, and how the public can support the fight.  The global organization is reportedly spearheading the implementation of the SaferKidsPH platform.

The #MakeITSafePH campaign also provides practical tips and easy-to-digest information about cybersecurity and safety.  It promotes online vigilance to help Filipinos defend themselves against online hacking, identity theft, and other cybercrimes.

The telco giant is going to stream the session on the  Facebook page of Globe Bridging Communities. Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications Yoly Crisanto further added,

As a digital solutions group, we look for ways to combat OSAEC through partnerships, instituting technical solutions, and working with the relevant stakeholders.  Ultimately, we aim to keep our kids safe when they spend time online.

Aside from that, the  Internet Watch Foundation will talk about the global impact of OSAEC, while CitizenWatch Philippines and Bantay Konsyumer, Kalsada, Kuryente (BK3) will give a perspective on how digital citizens are affected by the issue.

A study shows that the Philippines is among the world’s top producers of content rooted in this form of abuse. Several studies have reported that a number of families use their children as a source of income through OSAEC, especially with the onset of the pandemic, where many people lost their jobs.  

According to Globe, it supports initiatives to combat OSAEC and it continues its efforts in educating the public about digital citizenship and responsibility such as the Digital Thumbprint Program. It is also working with  Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) to strengthen the cause, and the Canadian Center for Child Protection to further identify illegal websites and block them out of its network.

Globe is hosting the #MakeITSafePH Webinar on February 8, 2020, at 10 AM.
