SGS is the leading organization in the region aimed at bringing preventative and proactive measures into our communities to offset the negative implications of a society immersed in technologies with a lack of resources and education to safely manage them. SGS's goal is to reduce digital-based anxieties, prevent peer and predator exploitation, and ensure online safety and privacy.
