DEFENDING THE CYBERSPACE
Digi Released Second CyberSAFE Online Safety Survey Report
Last month, Digi revealed the findings from its CyberSAFE in Schools 2015 survey, which pertains to the online safety of Malaysia. The report, which is compiled in collaboration with CyberSecurity Malaysia and the Ministry of Education, lists down details and the growing concern of cyber safety and digital resiliency among the schoolchildren of Malaysia.
“We are encouraged with the findings from this year's survey results as compared to the findings from the one conducted in 2013. It is discovered that generally, there is a positive pattern in children's online behavior and they are now more aware of the various categories of online risk and are able to choose different and multiple strategies to address these problems. Findings also revealed that the children will avoid negative sites and are unlikely to engage in new risks such as accessing suicide or self-harm sites and more importantly, exercise self control in relation to harmful websites and know who to approach for assistance,” Philip Ling, Digi's Program Manager for Sustainability commented.
“This is a testament to the positive impact of our consistent efforts to educate the schoolchildren. As part of our Empower Societies initiatives, Digi is dedicated in our efforts to continuously nurture a safer internet environment for Malaysian children through building digital resilience and fostering responsible digital citizenship among them.”
