Mr. Aldoseri concluded his presentation by highlighting the TRA's pioneering SafeSurf DVD Initiative. The DVD, which will be available in 5 languages, aims to raise the level of awareness on how to interact with other internet users and will teach the user to explore the internet in order to create, share, participate, communicate, and transact safely and securely.
