ENISA ENISA believes that awareness of what children can do online and parental involvement are crucial. Parents must be educated, empowered and engaged to ensure truly positive and valuable experiences for their children, while reinforcing safety online habits in the process. To this end, ENISA published a white paper and produced a set of security posters aim at raising awareness of parents to enhance the safety of children using virtual worlds and the Internet. The paper is available for download at http://www.enisa.europa.eu/act/ar/deliverables/2008/children-on-virtual-worlds, while the posters are available for download at http://www.enisa.europa.eu/act/ar/material/posters-for-parents.

Moreover, ENISA took part of the Child Online Protection (COP) initiative established by ITU. This initiative is an international collaborative network for action to promote the online protection of children worldwide by providing guidance on safe online behaviour in conjunction with other UN agencies and partners. Guidelines targeting children, parents, guardians and educators, industry and policy makers were developed with the help of multiple stakeholders, including ENISA. These Guidelines have been developed within the COP Initiative, as part of ITU’s Global Cybersecurity Agenda, with the aim of establishing the foundations for a safe and secure cyberworld not only for today’s youth but also for future generations. The Guidelines are meant to act as a blueprint which can be adapted and used in a way which is consistent with national or local customs and laws.

Dr. Touré, ITU Secretary-General in recognition of ENISA's dedication to the COP Initiative, presented the Agency with a certificate of appreciation at the ITU Telecom World 2009.
