Codifying online safety
Join the IIC Australian Chapter, Australia’s eSafety Commissioner, Julie Inman Grant, and an industry panel for a discussion about the development of new industry codes under the Online Safety Act 2021.
The industry codes will apply to the participants of eight key sections of the online industry that provide a wide range of services and may deal with matters including the proactive detection and removal of certain types of content, procedures for ensuring that online accounts are not provided to children without the consent of a parent or responsible adult, as well as promoting awareness of filtering options and safety issues.
The eSafety Commissioner is responsible for code registration and has published a position paper to assist industry code development.
This forum is an opportunity to explore what the objectives and approach mean for online safety and related issues around governance and enforcement, as well as incentives and outcomes, when it comes to identifying and regulating online harms.
The webinar will be moderated by IIC Australian Chapter President, Dr Derek Wilding.
