About FOSI

FOSI Mission & Values

Promoting the 3 P's

Enlightened Public Policy

FOSI brings together and highlights the best safety messages, tools and methods to reach parents, children and caregivers. We continually expand our efforts to educate and inform governments, regulators, industry and media around the world on a balanced approach to online safety.

Industry Best Practice

In recent years, we have expanded our highly regarded international roundtables to include larger seminars and conferences. FOSI hosts an annual international conference and exhibition to highlight the extraordinary work, products and services that exist today.

Good Digital Parenting

Need help talking with your kids about online safety? Want to know about parental controls? Looking for a simple set of rules to use with your children? FOSI’s Good Digital Parenting provides you with videos, tip sheets, resources, blogs, and more.


The Family Online Safety Institute is an international, non-profit organization which works to make the online world safer for kids and their families.  FOSI convenes leaders in industry, government and the non-profit sectors to collaborate and innovate new solutions and policies in the field of online safety.  Through research, resources, events and special projects, FOSI promotes a culture of responsibility online and encourages a sense of digital citizenship for all.


FOSI aims to be inclusive, transparent and non-partisan in all that we do.  We believe in a bottom-up, multi-stakeholder approach that is evidence-based and empowering.  While acknowledging the many and varied risks and threats online, FOSI also promotes the positive and enriching use of digital technology in all its forms.
