Taskforce founder: Focus on the crime, not the technology

"For our children sharing personal details, chatting by mobile, updating their status on Facebook is part of everyday life," he said. "So our challenge isn't to stop them doing this, but rather we must teach children about the dangers they might face in the virtual world and help them negotiate the cyber environment safely."

Successful education methods, according to Gamble, included the ThinkUKnow program run in schools in the UK and more recently Australia, as well as a web-based cybersafety panic button. The button was also set for replication locally, but did not eventuate despite the department responsible mounting $136,000 in costs.
