Child safety online

Global challenges and strategies

About

The Internet, mobile phones, and other electronic media provide children and young people with levels of access to information, culture, communication, and entertainment impossible to imagine just 20 years ago. With many of their extraordinary benefits, however, come hazards. The Internet and associated technologies have made abusive images of children easier to create and distribute, and provide significant new opportunities for abusers to access and make contact with children and young people online. While information and communication technologies (ICT) have not created crimes involving sexual abuse and exploitation of children, they have enhanced the scale and potential of some old and familiar ones.
