Executive Summary

A decade ago, approximately 182 million people accessed the Internet globally — and almost all of them lived in the developed world. Remarkably, by early 2009, there were over 1.5 billion Internet users worldwide, with over 400 million of those having access to broadband. Today, while not ubiquitous, Internet users are truly worldwide with over 600 million users in Asia, 130 million in Latin America and the Caribbean, and 50 million in Africa. The Internet continues to be a dynamic and incredible resource with almost unlimited capabilities to address societal problems from improved access to healthcare to remote learning opportunities to e-government to innovative and higher paying jobs. However, the growing global issues surrounding online cybersecurity require a global response, especially when it comes to the protection of our youngest and most vulnerable digital citizens: our children.
