One of the main drivers behind the development of NetClean ProTective is to limit revictimisation of exploited children. But, what do we mean when we talk about revictimisation?
Often, child sexual abuse survivors will say that the dissemination of images and films online affects them differently than the hands on abuse did, and this is because the material can live on forever on the internet, it never goes away – unless we do something about it.
As mobile phones are increasingly being used to produce, consume, share and store child sexual abuse material, it has become increasingly important to do what we can to disrupt this trend. Employers who provide their work force with mobile phones are one of the stakeholders in this effort.

As the Coronavirus has restricted our daily life and many employees now work from home, we risk seeing an increase in this behaviour.
Due to the closing of schools as a result of the Corona virus, experts agree that children will have an increased online presence and will be at an inadvertent risk. This week the FBI warned parents, educators, caregivers, and children about the dangers of online sexual exploitation and signs of child abuse.
Last week I was invited to speak at the UN Headquarters in New York, where the Working Group for Child Online Safety met for the launch of the new Broadband Commission report.
