Online protection: Web safety subject of workshop

Online protection
THE United Kingdom-based Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre kicked off a two-day training session yesterday aimed at educating 100 childcare professionals and teachers in online safety at Phnom Penh’s iCAN British International School.

The training will cover the threat posed by the internet for child trafficking and other dangers, according to a press release from the British embassy.

“Criminal policing is one important part of the picture, but it’s important that we have a joined-up approach involving all professionals dealing with children,” Ambassador Andrew Mace said in remarks that opened the workshop.

Neng Vannak, the embassy’s political affairs and press officer, said that although the embassy was unaware of any children being victimised by online activities, officials believed the training was “an early opportunity to share the lessons from the UK about the online environment”.

“iCAN is the only school we are aware of in Cambodia that has been using the CEOP materials, and we and CEOP were delighted that they wanted to participate in the training,” he added.
