Representatives from over fifty countries, leading technology companies, law enforcement agencies, and charities joined the Prime Minister and the Home Secretary at a two day summit in London to discuss the growing problem of online child abuse.
The delegates signed up to a range of actions and unveiled ground-breaking technological initiatives, which will make it much more difficult for criminals who seek to exploit the almost limitless potential of the digital age to abuse children for sexual purposes.
The Statements of Action agreed at the #WeProtect Summit are available for:
- Combined Industry,
- Leaders of countries, law enforcement agencies and international organisations,
- and Civil society organisations.
Having been asked by Government to be the Champion for the #WeProtect - Child Internet Risk Dashboard, techUK outlined the work on the CIRD (and the role of technology tools in general) to the Prime Minister and international delegates at the Global Summit, and at the most recent meeting of the Child Internet Risk Dashboard group on 28th February it was felt that this project was coming to a successful conclusion.
