ICT: new guidelines on child online protection

On September 2014, the International Telecommunication Union, the UNICEF and two United Nations agencies published the new guidelines on child online protection, for mobile operators, internet service providers, content providers, online retailers, app developers, social media providers, public service broadcasters, and operating system developers.
The purpose of the guidelines is to ensure the safety of children when using ICT technologies. 
Hence, companies have to focus on: (i) integrating child rights considerations into the corporate policies and management processes, (ii) developing standard processes to handle child sexual abuse material, (iii) creating a safer and age-appropriate online environment, (iv) appointing a qualified team as a responsible for the online child safety; (v) developing of notice and takedown procedures; (iv) educating children, parents, and teachers about children’s safety.
