Consultative Working Group
In May 2008, the Australian Government announced its cybersafety plan encompassing cybersafety education, international cooperation, research, law enforcement and filtering measures. A specific component of the plan provides for the establishment of a Consultative Working Group to provide advice to government on cybersafety issues.
The group is a key initiative of the government's cybersafety plan. It has the important role of providing advice on measures to protect Australian children from online risks including cyberbullying, exposure to illegal content and privacy breaches.
The group meets four times a year and has members drawn from community groups, internet service providers, industry associations, business and government.
