Princess Leonor of Spain made her second public appearance of the year today, which was also her second solo engagement. She attended a Conference on Youth and Cybersecurity: “Enjoy the Internet with Security”, organized by the National Institute of Cybersecurity (INCIBE) at the Julio Verne Secondary School in Madrid.
The Heiress to the Spanish throne, Leonor is a first-year student of International Baccalaureate at the UWC College of Wales. She has been on Spring break since April 14th and visited the Ukrainian Refugee center during the Easter weekend with her family.
Upon her arrival, Her Royal Highness the Princess of Asturias was received by the director of the IES Julio Verne, Francisco Javier Bellón, and the general director of the National Cybersecurity Institute (INCIBE), Rosa Díaz.
The National Institute of Cybersecurity of Spain (INCIBE), formerly the National Institute of Communication Technologies, is an institute supported by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation and is a reference entity for the development of cybersecurity and digital confidence of citizens, academic and research network, professionals, companies and especially for strategic sectors. INCIBE works to strengthen digital trust, increase cybersecurity and resilience and contribute to the digital market in a way that promotes the safe use of cyberspace in Spain. The conference was part of the School Days Program, developed from the 2016 – 2017 School year programs. INCIBE organized this ‘Conference on Youth and Cybersecurity: Enjoy the Internet with Security’ as part of its initiative to raise awareness among minors, parents, and educators, through which it offers cybersecurity services aimed at promoting the safe use of technologies through the Internet Safe for Kids (IS4K).
These school sessions aim to improve the digital skills of teachers and students in Primary and Secondary Education to make safe and responsible use of the Internet. Through different workshops, topics such as respect for others and the promotion of social skills for coexistence on the Internet, or the promotion of a critical spirit to compare information on social networks are addressed. Likewise, these sessions delve into how to protect minors’ digital devices and the development of initiatives and attitudes to prevent the risks to which they are exposed on the Internet. These training sessions have been held since 2016 throughout Spain and through which a total of 56,441 minors and 14,786 teachers have been trained. The day began with the round table on the use of social networks and security in communications, which was moderated by Cristina Gutiérrez, Cybersecurity technician for minors at INCIBE.
After the round table, the Princess of Asturias participated in a group debate in one of the classrooms with a group of students; formed by 4 students of 1st Bachiller and 5 students of Vocational Training led by 1 teacher. Once the debate was over, Doña Leonor went to the gym where 500 students from the center were present, for the presentation of the conclusions of the day by the general director of INCIBE. Before leaving, Her Royal Highness the Princess of Asturias stood for a group photograph with the students of the center.
