Liberty Puerto Rico celebrated “Safer Internet Day” on the island for the 10th year in a row Tuesday, as part of its social responsibility campaign “Navega con seguridad.”
This year, the campaign includes new initiatives to help people use the Internet safely, the company said.
“Safer Internet Day” is a global activity that raises awareness among children, young people, parents, teachers and the public on the importance of Internet safety. “Safer Internet Day” is held annually on Tuesday of the second week of February. This year, “Safer Internet Day” will feature the slogan “be the change: unite for a better Internet.” Puerto Rico participates in this initiative since 2008.
The main purpose of Liberty’s “Navega con seguridad” campaign, which runs year-round beyond “Safer Internet Day,” is to educate the public on how to use the Internet responsibly and safely.
This year, Liberty will produce a video on the risks of cyberbullying and sex exploitation to which children and teens are exposed to when navigating the Internet without supervision and how they can protect themselves.
“With the production of this video, we are taking our Navega con seguridad campaign to another level while we fulfill our role as a good corporate citizen,” said Naji Khoury, president of Liberty Puerto Rico.
“We know how important is to our customers to protect their children from dangers such as cyberbullying and online sexual exploitation. We are certain that this material will become a valuable tool to achieve this,” he said.
In addition to the video, Liberty will also mark “Safer Internet Day” by launching an upgraded version of “Navega con Seguridad’s” microsite, where people can find more information on the campaign, downloadable resources, videos, tip sheets and educational materials.
