Watching over us, so as to ‘make the internet a safer place’

Wired-Gov.net are delighted to be featuring news & insights from the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), the latest stakeholder channel now available from WiredGov.  The IWF works internationally to help victims of child sexual abuse worldwide by identifying & removing online images and videos of their abuse.

They search for child sexual abuse images & videos and offer a place for the public to report them anonymously.  They then have them removed.  They are a not for profit organisation and are supported by the global internet industry and the EC.

They minimise the availability of online sexual abuse content.  Specifically:

  • Child sexual abuse content hosted anywhere in the world
  • Criminally obscene adult content hosted in the UK
  • Non-photographic child sexual abuse images hosted in the UK
