IWF annual report released today

The Internet Watch Foundation’s (IWF) annual report, released today, found that 60% of worldwide abuse material is hosted in Europe. This is a shift from North America, that have previously hosted a majority of the material. According to IWF, the shift could reflect the great work done by the US industry to tackle the problem, making it more difficult to host material in the US.

Anna Borgström, Head of NetClean, is at the IWF annual report launch today: “The report highlights that if we make efforts to detect child sexual abuse material, no matter whether we talk about ISPs, social media platforms or workplaces, we will find it – and that is the reason why it is so important. In addition, the rise in encryption means it is becoming increasingly important for workplaces to use their position to find material once it has been decrypted.”
