SAFEnet and UK’s Get Safe Online Webinar: Tackling Online Gender Based Violence and Launch of Cybersecurity Website Get Safe Online Indonesia for Inclusive Internet

The new Get Safe Online Indonesia website – available in English and Indonesian Bahasa – will be officially launched during a webinar event hosted by the British Embassy in Jakarta. The webinar focuses on the projects undertaken by Indonesian NGO, SAFEnet Indonesia, and Get Safe Online together.

Online gender-based violence (OGBV) has been a global phenomenon since the beginning of the internet. Already a serious issue, the COVID-19 pandemic has made matters worse. UN Women have raised concerns of an exponential increase in gender-based violence, manifesting in different forms - including online and ICT-facilitated violence.

The British Embassy Jakarta through UK’s Digital Access Programme, working with SAFEnet and UK’s Get Safe Online (GSO), have been focusing on a project to address these increased risks providing the “Awas KBGO” initiative which aims to be the nation-wide information centre for Online Gender Based Violence issue (or KBGO) in the form of a simple interactive website, and produce learning modules/guidelines and versatile multimedia contents to distribute across digital platforms for public, education institution, and multi-stakeholder in the support systems.

You are invited to tune in to the event which will be streamed live via British Embassy Jakarta’s YouTube channel at this link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCU4khGu2Xawt53imaJl51hw

CyCon 2021: Going Viral

CyCon 2021's central theme is Going Viral. It alludes to the implications of human crises (such as the 2020 pandemic) for cybersecurity and cyberspace. At a more abstract level, it aims to encourage discussions on the impact of fast proliferation and high unpredictability in cyberspace. Whether they concern old threats such as malware or new trends affecting cyberspace such as information campaigns, these phenomena have major real-life implications. We need to acknowledge those, study them and strive to use them for our common benefit.
