KEEPING SAFE ONLINE
The government has announced a package of proposals to tackle cyberbullying and unwanted internet content. The proposals, revealed in full by the Irish Independent a fortnight ago, include moves to introduce anti-cyberbullying lessons as a "core element" in primary and secondary school curriculums. They also recommend "closing the gap" in existing online harassment and cyberstalking law by inserting the words "electronic communications" into existing anti-harassment legislation. The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland has been earmarked to gain new oversight powers to help protect children from age-inappropriate content in catchup TV services and other online television and video programmes. The proposals also recommend that Irish internet providers should be "encouraged" to incorporate parental control filters.
