- INHOPE (International Association of Hotlines)
Online distribution of child sexual abuse material (CSAM) is a rapidly expanding global problem and the INHOPE network is at the lead in facing this challenge. INHOPE is a global network of hotlines combating online CSAM with 46 hotlines in 41 countries. Hotlines enable the public to report online material, including potential CSAM, that they suspect to be illegal. The hotline will review and investigate each report. If confirmed as illegal, they work with partner hotlines in the network, law enforcement and industry to get the content removed, as rapidly as possible, from the internet.
INHOPE and its extensive network of member hotlines work to eliminate online child sexual abuse material (CSAM). During Safer Internet Forum (SIF) 2018, Fred Langford, Deputy CEO of the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) and INHOPE President, and Peter-Paul Urlaub, consultant at eco complaints office and INHOPE Board Member, gave a presentation on the journey of a report on CSAM.
