PSI: Portuguese Safer Internet
PSI is the Safer Internet Centre for Portugal
Portuguese Safer Internet (PSI) project aims to develop in Portugal a culture of awareness and social contribution to report illegal contents in the Internet, in order to minimize as far as possible the negative aspects of the generalization of Internet usage. The awareness node will educate and inform people how to protect themselves from the dangers of the Internet, as a preventive and awareness action, and the hotline will be a resource for citizens to report illegal or harmful contents.
In more detail:
1. Awareness node
As an awareness node, the projects and actions developed under the objective to inform and educate citizens, not only in what concerns to the type and nature of dangers underlying the use of the Internet, but also to provide the means and instruments available to prevent those same dangers. The PSI project is ambitious in these objectives as it will try to implement actions and communication strategies in order to achieve as diverse target groups as possible.
At a European and International level, the hotline service will build upon the experience of other hotlines, either by communicating to police force illegal content hosted in Portugal, or to inform other hotlines of illegal and harmful content hosted abroad. It will essentially be another resource of INHOPE to achieve their objectives. With the project conclusion, Portugal will have a fully operational system that will try to achieve four main objectives:
- Citizens to report illegal or harmful content (identifying themselves or in anonymity);
- An analytical team to study and produce denouncing reports;
- A light communication process to report legally the content to police forces;
- A commitment with Internet Service Providers to block content until judicial analysis is made and to adapt, if necessary, their common acceptable usage condition objectives.
