On 20th November 2019, a historic event commenced with the launching of the cyber parenting guideline booklet entitled “Cybersafe Parenting- Ke Arah Kesejahteraan Siber” by the Duli Yang Maha Mulia Raja Permaisuri Agong, Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah Binti Almarhum Al-Mutawakkil Alallah Sultan Iskandar Al-Haj and the Duli Yang Maha Mulia Tunku Ampuan Besar Negeri Sembilan, Tuanku Aishah Rohani Binti Almarhum Tengku Besar Mahmud.
The booklet was produced through collaborative efforts between University of Malaya, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, DiGi Telecommunications and CyberSecurity Malaysia. The department’s Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) candidate, Dr Muhd Zulfadli Hafiz bin Ismail under the supervision of Dr Nik Daliana Nik Farid and Dr Rafdzah Ahmad Zaki have contributed to the guideline by providing the cyber parenting quiz in the booklet, which is adapted from Dr Zulfadli’s DrPH thesis.
The recognition of the booklet by both Her Majesties was indeed an honour and proves that multi-agency collaborations are essential in translating research evidence into tangible products that are beneficial to the population in general.
The booklet is available online and can be accessed through CyberSecurity Malaysia’s website at www.cybersafe.my.
