Kaspersky Lab and European Schoolnet today announced a joint initiative that will increase the amount of support provided to children that have been exposed to cyberbullying in Europe.

The Insafe Helpline Fund is operated in partnership with the European Schoolnet and the collaboration will deliver a 12 per cent capacity increase in fielding calls to its helpline numbers across Europe. The helplines are available to those affected by online issues, including cyberbullying, online abuse and concerns about online reputation.

Janice Richardson, Senior Advisor at European Schoolnet and co-founder of Insafe said: “industry is at the forefront in developing the tools young people are using today in almost all aspects of their lives. Collaborative initiatives such as this therefore make perfect sense. All sectors of society have an important role to play in empowering young people to use the potential and opportunities online technology offers to become creative, resilient, innovative citizens to tackle the challenges of the future.”

European Schoolnet, the Insafe network and Kaspersky Lab are dedicated to improving family security in its own ways, each focusing on reducing the negative effects of online issues on parents, children and young people. The collaboration is a first step in addressing this shared concern, each party adding its own unique expertise to promote and encourage digital citizenship in the future. 

Alexander Moiseev, Managing Director of Kaspersky Lab, Europe: “we discovered in early discussions how similar our corporate values are to European Schoolnet and Insafe and saw this collaboration as a great opportunity to extend our mission to protect the online world, by bringing it into the real world. Cyberbullying is a very serious global matter and we look forward to increasing our own engagement and support in this area next year.”

Kaspersky Lab will donate one Euro to the Insafe Helpline Fund for every Kaspersky Total Security – Multi Device sold online in Europe during December 2014, with a guarantee to secure a minimum donation to field an additional 9000 calls in 2015.
