Public private partnerships (PPPs) is the main expertise of the Safer Internet Centre (SIC) in the Netherlands. The Dutch SIC has a long history of public private partnerships and has managed to get ministries and private partners on board with no exclusivity (everyone can join), aligning safety, skills, digital literacy, media literacy and cyber security programmes on a national level.
The SIC is also experienced in organising large campaigns, big events and expert sessions.
The Dutch hotline deals with 30,000 reports a year with a small team. This is a huge amount to deal with, and hence the SIC is extremely proud that it manages to get this awful material removed from the internet as fast as possible.
Key supporters of the Dutch Safer Internet Centre include:
- The Ministry of Economic Affairs (telecommunication law and responsibility regarding industry, so funding the awareness node).
- Ministry of Safety and Justice (cyber security and funding the hotline and the helpline).
- Ministry of Social Welfare (funding the helpline).
- Ministry of Education (funding a media literacy programme).
All relevant NGOs and knowledge centres participate in expert groups or the Advisory Board.
Additionally, private partners in the telecommunication sector - all the largest ISP's, mobile providers and the hosting sector - are supporting the centre, both financially and by taking part in the working groups and Advisory Board.
