An event to endorse for a Safer Internet Day 2016 organised by ICDL Sri Lanka got underway in Colombo on Tuesday.

‘Safer Internet’ Day is organised by the Insafe Network of Europe in February of each year to promote safer and more responsible use of online technological and mobile phones, especially among children and young people across the world.

Chairman of Gateway Group, Dr. Harsha Alles noted:
