IntelliGrade tech from IWF is helping companies and law enforcement bodies to fight back against criminals who trade, store and upload images and videos showing the sexual abuse of children.
Worried about how to support a young person who has had a sexual image or video of themselves shared online? If they’re under 18, they can use Childline and the Internet Watch Foundation's discreet Report Remove tool to see if it can be taken down.
“I want to pay tribute to the crucial work of the Internet Watch Foundation and their partnership with industry, law enforcement and the Government in identifying and removing illegal child sexual abuse images from the internet. We will continue to work together to tackle this ever-evolving threat and to pursue our target of making the UK the safest place in the world to go online.”The Rt Hon Theresa May MP, Prime Minister of the UK, 2016-2019
“The IWF do an incredibly important job. Stopping criminals using and abusing online technologies is tough. But the IWF have shown how working together with law enforcement, commercial companies and the voluntary sector can make a real difference in minimising the availability of child sexual abuse images.”Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman, Google
