“SafenetCY” is the Hotline that promotes the safe use of Internet in Cyprus. It serves the needs of all people that live on the island (i.e., also Turkish-Cypriots and other minorities) and addresses not only issues of pornography, but also racism (currently on the rise in Cyprus), gender discrimination and inappropriate use of peoples’ images.
The hotline operates island-wide (serving also Turkish-Cypriots and other minorities) and focuses on reports of child sexual abuse images and racism/xenophobia. The project engages actors from the government and civil society, therefore contributing towards the eradication of cyber crime in more than one sector. The hotline offers the opportunity to all people to report through the various different reporting methods that it entails (i.e. telephone, email and website).
