IC Citizen Certification is the first certification program in the world specifically designed to produce digitally literate and responsible citizens. This unique and universal certification program is dedicated to promoting an Acceptable Usage Policy (AUP) and establish rules for acceptable behavior, or netiquette, when operating digital devices and using the Internet.

"Netizen is an Internet user who possesses a sense of civic responsibility for her/his virtual community in much the same way citizens would feel responsible for a physical community."
Michael Hauben
