The internet goes mobile - child protection in the always connected age

3 December 2008 - A Workshop on Security in Hyderabad, India

Original Proposal

Many countries see the emergence of mobile phone technology as a means of leapfrogging costly, time-consuming and ecologically challenging routes to providing mass internet access to their citizens. But with the development of WiFi enabled handsets, with GPS modules built in and with mobile phones; having high quality vidoes and stills cameras as standard what extra or particular child safety challenges can we expect and what strategies are emerging to meet those challenges?
