Child sexual abuse material is a security issue

In 2012 the Swedish Transport Administration made the decision to install NetClean ProActive to ensure that nobody was viewing or downloading child sexual abuse material on the authorities work computers.

IT Safety Specialist, Conny Jäverdal, shares the security concerns that they see linked to this issue.

Conny Jäverdal has worked on IT security issues since the 1980s. He is currently IT Safety Specialist at the Swedish Transport Administration, and has been responsible for the installation and running of NetClean ProActive since the start in 2012. Even though NetClean ProActive was requested by the HR department, it fell to Conny Jäverdal to manage it as alerts triggered by the software are a security issue that need to be handled in a similar manner to other IT security investigations
