Media Release – 9 May 2008

InternetNZ (the Internet Society of New Zealand Inc) congratulates
NetSafe subsidiary Hector’s World Limited on the UK launch of its online
cyber-safety resource Hector’s World.

Hector’s World has been selected by UK law enforcement agency CEOP
(Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) as their key resource
for keeping younger children safe from sexual abuse and grooming online.

InternetNZ Executive Director Keith Davidson says the UK launch should
significantly raise both Hector’s World and NetSafe’s international

“Offshore take-up of this cyber safety resource is testament to both its
quality and originality. Hector’s World is a practical and engaging
application that sends all the right online safety messages to children.”

NetSafe and its subsidiary Hector’s World are important sibling
organisations of InternetNZ, and the Society fully supports their
ongoing efforts in educating the general public about the dangers that
lurk online.

“Knowing the dangers helps prevent children from being harmed, and the
Hector concept provides an empowerment tool for children to
self-protect,” says Davidson.
