On 6 February 2018, Prof. Dr. Udo Helmbrecht, Executive Director of ENISA, attended an event in Strasbourg, which was organised by the European Commission.

The Safer Internet Day (SID) is a global movement celebrated in over 130 countries each year. Its aim is to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology, especially among children and young people, and to call each stakeholder to play their part in creating a better internet for all. Each year on this day, millions of people unite to inspire positive change, and Europol is proud to join the cause. In 2018, we are supporting its theme: “Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you” by sharing our tips and advice on online safety, a reminder for all, but especially for the youngest among us, on responsible and careful online behaviour.
