Las empresas se unen para crear los primeros principios liderados por el sector y de ámbito europeo para mejorar la seguridad online de los niños

BRUSELAS, January 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --


La Coalición ICT para un Internet más seguro para los niños y la gente joven ha anunciado hoy sus principios rectores para el desarrollo de productos y servicios para mejorar activamente la seguridad online de los niños y la gente joven.

25 empresas del sector de la tecnología de la información y las comunicaciones son los firmantes de los principios cuyo objetivo es garantizar que los niños y la gente joven obtengan el mayor beneficio de las nuevas tecnologías, al mismo tiempo que evitan los desafíos y los riesgos que preocupan a la gente en todo el mundo.

Los principios se centran en áreas clave como contenido, control de los padres, gestionar el abuso/mal uso, contenido de abuso sexual infantil o contactos ilegales, privacidad y control, así como educación y concienciación. Los firmantes se comprometen a:

  • desarrollar formas innovadoras de mejorar la seguridad online y animar al uso responsable de Internet y los dispositivos de acceso a Internet por parte de los niños y la gente joven;
  • capacitar a los padres y cuidadores para que se impliquen y protejan a sus hijos;
  • ofrecer información fácilmente accesible, clara y transparente sobre seguridad y comportamiento online;
  • concienciar sobre cómo y a quién informar de abusos y preocupaciones.

Hay más detalles disponibles sobre los principios ICT y las acciones para realizar por los firmantes en: http://www.gsma-documents.com/safer_mobile/ICT_Principles.pdf.

Los principios ICT se han establecido deliberadamente a un nivel conceptual para permitir la más amplia variedad posible de empresas -desde operadores de redes hasta fabricantes de dispositivos, proveedores de contenidos, motores de búsqueda y muchos más- para que sean signatarias y garantizar que la seguridad infantil sea una parte integral de sus productos y servicios. Los principios difieren de otras iniciativas en curso porque ofrecen una hoja de ruta a largo plazo para un desarrollo más seguro y cubren todos los aspectos del acceso y el uso de Internet y sus servicios.

Los firmantes empezarán a implantar los principios en 2012 y se está creando una plataforma para los interesados para garantizar que los firmantes del sector obtengan información de una amplia variedad de participantes, incluyendo defensores del menor y representantes nacionales. La Coalición ICT apoya totalmente las iniciativas relacionadas del vicepresidente de la Comisión Europea, Neelie Kroes.

Los firmantes iniciales de los principios aparecen enumerados a continuación. Representan a una amplia variedad de tecnologías que incluye móviles, telecomunicaciones, juegos sociales, fabricantes, proveedores de contenidos e ISP. Estos harán un llamamiento a otros interesados para que muestren su apoyo a la seguridad infantil uniéndose a la Coalición ICT y adoptando los principios.

Las empresas que quieran unirse a la Coalición ICT y adoptar los principios deben ponerse en contacto con Andrea Parola, [email protected].

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
