The internet is everything you want, but also a lot of what you do not. The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC) is committed to helping people in Qatar stay safe online, with a primary focus on children. Staying safe online requires the involvement of the entire community. MOTC is working directly with teachers and parents to educate them about keeping their children safe online, while being smart in their own practices.
The Cyber Safety program worked closely with Q-CERT team to launch safespace.qa, a resource to help protect children online. This website provides educational games and tips, along with up-to-date information to help parents and teachers protect kids from cyber-bullying and other dangers. To further supplement these efforts, MOTC is creating a hotline for families and educators to report online threats and receive guidance on how to handle specific situations.
