NetSafe Strategic Partnership

(Links to Strategy 2: Advocacy and Public Policy)

Sponsor: N/A

Staff Support: Jordan Carter

Status: Active Smiley Smiley


InternetNZ sponsors NetSafe in a strategic partnership, to the value of $100,000 per year paid as a block grant.

NetSafe is a world-leading advocate and thought-leader in cyber safety. InternetNZ's partnership goes well beyond simple funding: InternetNZ staff and councillors contribute to NetSafe events and vice versa, and Jordan is a regular attendee at NetSafe members' group meetings.

NetSafe gains from InternetNZ's point of view being part of its deliberations; InternetNZ gains from supporting a quality advocate for cyber safety which is one of InternetNZ's objectives.


$100,000 in 2009/10.
