In Malaysia, SID celebrations were first held in 2010 initiated by CyberSecurity Malaysia.
Each year, various programmes and activities related to cyber security and internet safety are organised by CyberSecurity Malaysia together with smart partners who also embrace cyber security and the internet safety agenda in Malaysia.

For Safer Internet Day (SID) 2018, local agencies are focusing on making parents more Internet savvy so they can keep their families safe online. 

While SID, celebrated globally on Feb 6, ran with the theme "Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you", the Malaysian edition focused on the topic of "Cyber Parenting – Cyber Resilient Families Begin With You".

National Cyber Security Agency (NCSA) chief executive Ir Shah Nuri Md Zain said as an entity responsible for the nation's cyber-security, NSCA was committed to preparing Malaysia to be wiser and more ethical online. 

Among the programmes and initiatives organised in conjunction with SID 2018 were the #DealWithIT campaign, a study on Internet-related health risk among teenagers, guidebook, videos and a seminar  on cyber-parenting. 

The #DealWithIT campaign, introduces five pledges for guardians choosing to be more responsible with their cyber-parenting.
