Cybersafety

The mobile telecommunications industry takes measures to minimise the risks associated with the misuse of mobile technology. We believe the positive aspects far outweigh the negative, however, we are committed to providing practical advice to help prevent the misuse of mobile technology through cyberbullying.

AMTA sits on the Consultative Working Group on Cyber-Safety. The Group is a key initiative of the Australian Government's cyber-safety plan. It has the important role of providing advice to the Australian Government on measures to protect Australian children from cyber-safety risks including cyber-bullying, exposure to illegal content and privacy breaches.

AMTA has formed partnerships with the Australian Council of State School Organisations (ACSSO), the peak council of government school parents and citizens and school community governing bodies, and the Alannah and Madeline Foundation, a national charity keeping children safe from violence.
