InternetNZ congratulates Hector’s World Ltd on UK launch

Media Release – 9 May 2008 – InternetNZ (the Internet Society of New Zealand Inc) congratulates NetSafe subsidiary Hector’s World Limited on the UK launch of its online cyber-safety resource Hector’s World.

Hector’s
World has been selected by UK
law enforcement agency CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre)
as their key resource for keeping younger children safe from sexual abuse and
grooming online.

InternetNZ
Executive Director Keith Davidson says the UK launch should significantly
raise both Hector’s World and NetSafe’s international profile.

“Offshore
take-up of this cyber safety resource is testament to both its quality and
originality. Hector’s World is a practical and engaging application that sends
all the right online safety messages to children.”

NetSafe
and its subsidiary Hector’s World are important sibling organisations of
InternetNZ, and the Society fully supports their ongoing efforts in educating
the general public about the dangers that lurk online.

“Knowing
the dangers helps prevent children from being harmed, and the Hector concept
provides an empowerment tool for children to self-protect,” says Davidson.
