Safer Internet Day 2018

Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you.

Mirus IT is proud to support the Safer Internet Day 2018 campaign: #ItStartsWithUs - Play your part, together we can build a better internet. As one of the leading providers of strategic IT services and support, we're dedicated to providing safer online environments. In 2018 the Mirus team will be delivering our free e-safety sessions for parents to help them combat the risks to their children when using technology at home, and this global campaign provides excellent information and support to ensure online safety.

Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission*, each February to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology, especially among children and young people. Celebrated on the second day of the second week of the second month, each year on Safer Internet Day millions of people unite to inspire positive change and raise awareness of online safety issues and participate in events and activities right across the globe.

Safer Internet Day aims to not only create a safer internet but also a better internet, where everyone is empowered to use technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.

Safer Internet Day aims to reach out to children and young people, parents and carers, teachers, educators and social workers, as well as industry, decision makers and politicians, to encourage everyone to play their part in creating a better internet.

By celebrating the positive power of the internet, the 2018 Safer Internet Day theme of “Create, Connect and Share Respect: a better internet starts with you” encourages everyone to join the global movement, to participate, to make the most of the internet’s potential to bring people together.

With a global, community-led approach, Safer Internet Day 2018 encourages everyone to join and play their part.
