In today technology, the 21st century - era of Social Media and Cloud Computing - where we are living in connecting to one another thru ease of technology no matter where you stay, we can keep in touch each. To stay away from those internal or external cyber threats, we must learn how to stay safe online for those children and parents.

Seeing that Ezecom, Cambodia’s leading internet service provider, will soon launch WebChlaat - an online guide for children and their parents to help children enjoy the internet while staying safe from cyber bullying and inappropriate content, according to the company's news.

WebChlaat” or ‘WebSmart” is a seven tip guide prepared by Ezecom in association with leading child rights advocacy groups Friends International and ChildSafe, which recently certified Ezecom as Cambodia’s first ChildSafe company.

Ezecom will be running a live banner on the CEN website (http://www.cen.com.kh/) in the next weeks – providing daily internet safety tips and a link to the WebChlaat site at http://webchlaat.com/.

Among the safety tips for children: be smart when making online friends, be smart what you share on the internet and be smart about emails from strangers.

For parents the tips include: be smart and prepared to answer tough questions, be smart about anti-virus software and be smart about cyber bullying and its consequences.

“As a parent myself of course I want my children to enjoy the learning opportunities, entertainment and other resources that the internet offers. But its important that we help parents and children talk openly about some of the dangers that lurk out there on the internet, so that we can all benefit from the power of the internet without falling victim to the perils,” said Ezecom CEO Paul Blanche-Horgan.

The WebChlaat website underlines Ezecom’s long term commitment to supporting education and children’s rights.
