On Monday 4 April 2022, Member for Barker Tony Pasin will be hosting the Australian eSafety Commissioner Ms Julie Inman Grant in Mount Gambier.

Member for Barker Tony Pasin together with Ms Julie Inman Grant will be holding a ‘Stay Safe Online’ Community Forum at 6pm at the Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre in Mount Gambier.

“The Community Forum will cover what you need to know to keep you and your families safe online.”

“Ms Inman Grant will also provide information about how the eSafety Commissioner can support parents and carers when things go wrong online, including cyberbullying and image base abuse, as well as providing parenting strategies to help manage technology.”

“First hand access to the Australian Commissioner is a real coup for our region and I would strongly encourage parents, carers and young people themselves to come along to this FREE community information forum to learn more about how to keep you and your family safe online.“ Mr Pasin said.

Mr Pasin said the eSafety Commissioner is Australia’s independent regulator for online safety.

“The Office of the eSafety Commissioner is the first government agency dedicated to keeping people safer online and commenced operations in 2015.  The Commissioner has been at the forefront of the fight against online abuse and harm ever since. The eSafety Commissioner is a fast-growing team, including educators, investigators, lawyers, policy and technology experts, digital specialists and other professionals who share one goal – a safer and more positive online experience for all Australians.”

“Ms Inman Grant has deep experience in the technology industry, having held senior public policy and safety roles with Microsoft, Twitter and Adobe.“

“As Commissioner, Ms Inman Grant plays an important global role as Chair of the Child Dignity Alliance’s Technical Working Group and as a Board Member of the WePROTECT Global Alliance.” Mr Pasin said.
