One of the tasks of the implementation of SDG16 “Peace, security and sustainable institutions” in Kazakhstan is to create a safe environment in everything, including in the Global Internet.
We, as the organizers of the seminars within the framework of the project “Involvement of civil society institutions in the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in Kazakhstan,” implemented with the grant support of the NAO “Center for Support of Civil Initiatives” of the Ministry of Information and Public Development of Kazakhstan, came out during the very first seminar on the protection of children’s rights. Thanks to our main partner on this topic, Khalida Azhigulova, who is a well-known human rights defender and a certified specialist in the field of children’s rights. According to her recommendations, we invited Shavkat Sabirov, who is one of the very first experts in Kazakhstan on Internet security, to our seminar.
In this publication we would like to invite you to get acquainted with SAFEKAZNET.KZ
One of the most important tasks of the Association of Legal Entities “Internet Association of Kazakhstan” is to popularize the national segment of the Internet and also promote its development as a harmonious environment that takes into account the interests of all its users.
Therefore, the purpose of our project is to contribute by public means to measures to counter the propaganda of the cult of cruelty and violence, drug addiction, pornography of extremism, and terrorism, especially among the most susceptible younger generation.
Through our website, www.safekaznet.kz Internet users can send messages with reference to Internet resources in the Kazakh segment, posting videos, comments and other materials of unacceptable and insulting human dignity content.
The website hotline specialists will review all messages and, if confirmed, immediately contact the owner of the Internet resource or its hosting provider to take measures to remove it.
The main principles of interaction with hosting providers and telecom operators are enshrined in the Declaration “On Safe Internet,” signed by leading Kazakh telecom operators and hosting providers in June 2010.
Similar hotlines are already operating in many countries around the world and can significantly reduce the impact of Internet threats.

How to set up the security tablets and smartphones your kids use
Posted on 17.04.2015 by Dasha Donbass
Smartphones and tablets in the hands of children often turn into universal game consoles. As you probably guess, not all games should be installed on children’s mobile devices: many of them contain scenes of violence, frank scenes, some characters are vile and show a bad example.
However, games are not the only danger: many applications, even downloaded from the official store, may contain unwanted information. Therefore, at least periodically parents should check the device of their beloved child.
This can upset the child, especially those at the age of denial of authority. However, sharp corners can be smoothed a little if you use a specialized IT solution, without unnecessary quarrels and disputes sending you reports about applications installed on your children’s devices.
If you allow your children to use your personal smartphone or tablet, make sure that children can’t access important information – passwords, credit card numbers, and so on. If possible, turn on children’s mode on your phone to restrict access to settings and important data. If your device does not have built-in child mode, you can add it using a separate application.
Another reasonable rule is not to store confidential data in the public domain. In most cases, it is enough to set a complex password to protect personal folders and applications that children do not need to see. Just make sure the kid doesn’t know him.
Many mobile platforms support credit card payments for app purchases or additional game bonuses. We recommend that you disable this feature on your child’s device or link a card to it with restrictions on online purchases. It is best to use a virtual payment card: in this way you will minimize the risk that important bank data accidentally falls into the wrong hands.
According to studies, 21% of parents lose money or personal data due to child negligence.
There are a number of solutions to protect children from cyber threats: secure browsers for iOS and Windows Phone, applications and specialized solutions for Windows, Mac OS X, Android and iOS. However, do not forget that the technological solution itself, even the most advanced, will not cope with the protection of the child. The application is just a tool. Talk more to your children, let them know that you trust them and they can always share their problems with you.
PS: I want to thank Shavkat Umarovich Sabirov for the great work for the safety of our citizens on the Internet, for the huge desire to raise the digital literacy of all of us!
