Luxembourgish Safer Internet Centre
About the organisation
BEE SECURE is promoting online safety and the secure use of new information technology. BEE SECURE manages the contact point for the general public with a main focus on children and youngsters. BEE SECURE is an initiative of the Luxembourg government, supported by the European Commission, and run by the National Youth Service (SNJ - Service National de la Jeunesse), the national helpline (KJT - KannerJugendtelefon) and the economic interest group Security made in Lëtzebuerg (SMILE g.i.e.).
Profile last updated: May 2020
The awareness centre coordinates all activities to promote a safer and responsible use of the internet and mobile technologies: delivering training courses, information and animation at public events, providing eSafety awareness resources on its website and as print material.
Based on the most significant threats and trends, the BEE SECURE awareness centre strives to develop thematic campaigns for each school year with a wide impact and a long-lasting effect.
BEE SECURE campaigns have three objectives: to educate people in a positive way, to create a culture of security and to establish a broader view of information security.
The BEE SECURE helpline can be reached by the toll-free phone number 8002 1234 and is intended especially for youngsters and their parents. It offers help and advice regarding the use of information and communication technologies as well as the necessary ‘soft skills' to ensure good behavioural practices. The helpline is operated by Luxembourg's general child helpline KannerJugendTelefon.
The BEE SECURE Stopline project aims to provide a structure enabling illegal internet content (child sexual abuse images, racism and discrimination, terrorism) to be reported anonymously and to deal with these reports in collaboration with the relevant national and international authorities.
The BEE SECURE kids/youth panel consists of different groups of children or youngsters who meet on demand to discuss new media and feed back their views on information safety related issues and on emerging trends. The kids and youth panel are valuable tools for the SIC in supporting the development of awareness material and orientate its activities according to new trends.
