The report discusses how different [[online]] safety measures can play a part in [[mitigating]] one or more [[online]] [[risk]]s. At this time, [[filtering]] technologies are regarded as suited to addressing particular [[static]] [[content]] [[risk]]s. The report also discusses how the use of [[content]] rating and labelling can minimise [[risk]]s associated with inappropriate [[static]] [[content]] and how [[internet]] hotlines provide a mechanism for [[user]]s to report potentially illegal [[content]] to appropriate organisations for investigation. Legal frameworks also make the production and [[online]] publication of this [[content]] unlawful in some jurisdictions.

The report identifies how users can be empowered to manage the [[online]] [[risk]]s they encounter. Parental [[monitor]]ing of [[online]] activity can be effective in minimising both [[content]] and [[communication]] [[risk]]s. Education initiatives can raise awareness of issues and provide information and support to develop protective skills and behaviours. These initiatives empower [[user]]s to engage in [[online]] activities in a way that minimises exposure to the [[risk]]s associated with their use of [[online service]]s.

When considering [[content]] and [[communication]] [[risk]]s, the report highlights that clusters of measures can be more effective in minimising [[risk]]s than single initiatives. As a general rule, [[filtering]] and [[content]] rating and labelling schemes are aimed at addressing [[content]] [[risk]]s, while [[monitor]]ing of [[user]]s' [[online]] activity and educational programs are mostly aimed at equipping [[user]]s to identify and deal with [[communication]] [[risk]]s.
