Webinar in collaboration with
MMUN is pleased to announce a free webinar: “Tech Company Strategies from Design to Moderation: Challenges and Opportunities”, held by Tess Leyland, Policy and Public Affairs Assistant of Internet Watch Foundation and Laura Higgins, Director of Digital Civility, Roblox.
The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) makes the internet a safer place for children and adults across the world. We’re a not-for-profit organization, supported by the internet industry, and the European Commission and the generosity of ordinary people.
We work closely with police, governments, and NGOs globally.
For 23 years we’ve given people a safe place to report imagery anonymously, now covering 27 countries. We assess every report we receive. If it shows the sexual abuse of a child, we make sure the image or video is removed. To do this effectively, we develop new technology and provide bespoke tools to our industry Members. No child should suffer repeated abuse and victimization.
Our work relies on compassionate and resilient staff members, who are highly trained and carefully looked after. We encourage others to play their part, whether it is reporting to us, funding us, or collaborating on the best technology and research.
The children in these pictures and videos are real. The suffering captured in this imagery and the knowledge that it could be shared can haunt a victim for life.
That’s why it’s our mission to eliminate this material for good. And to show every child there is someone out there who cares enough to help.
