Stakeholders discussed streamlining of work to safeguard children
At a meeting recently convened to discuss procedure relating to when child sexual abuse material is found on work computers, representatives from local authorities (Värmland, Sweden), the local prosecution service, local police and National Operative Department (Swedish national police) sat down to share their expertise. The bodies all detailed their part of the process, followed by a discussion about how the different bodies can collaborate and streamline the process better.
Mats Jensen, Department Manager, Development IT at Karlstad Municipality:
This type of meeting motivates others and us to continue the work that we do to ensure that child sexual abuse material is not handled on work computers in organisations. Face to face meetings are still the most powerful way to create commitment and strengthening people in working towards a common goal as important as this is.
At NetClean, we see great value in this type of collaboration. It increases the understanding of different organisations’ work processes and needs, and strengthens positive partnerships. It improves results for organisations that work to protect their IT environment against this type of material, furthers the work of judicial bodies, and advances the work that we do to safeguard children.
