ICDL Arabia, the governing body of the ICDL certificate programme in Egypt, GCC and Iraq, has been honoured by UAE’s Ministry of Interior (Child Protection Center) for raising awareness on cyber safety among children.
The organization has taken on cyber safety as an integral part of its mission and was presented with a plaque in appreciation for exhibiting outstanding efforts in spreading awareness about cyber safety among the youth.
Held at the Abu Dhabi Police Headquarters, the event was attended by senior officials and decision makers representing various departments in Abu Dhabi government and UAE ministries.
ICDL Arabia has collaborated with several government organizations and private institutions to raise awareness about internet safety and the responsible use of various social media platforms. Moreover, it has launched several initiatives for school children about safe internet etiquette, digital safety education, appropriate online behaviour, and cyber crimes.
“It is a tremendous honour to receive this recognition from the Ministry of Interior as we strongly feel that it is the duty of every individual and institution, private or public, to protect children from the threats lurking on cyber space,” said Jamil Ezzo, director general, ICDL Arabia.
“ICDL Arabia remains focused on spreading awareness about the safe and secure use of the Internet and social media and is currently working hand-in-hand with the concerned authorities to educate society in general and children in particular about the mindful use of modern technologies.
“Rest assured, we will continue with our efforts to launch more initiatives so that the youth can enjoy the benefits of the Internet and social media without any having to face the risks and threats swarming all over the Internet,” concluded Ezzo. – TradeArabia News Service
