Our fourth annual #skillnadpåriktigt conference was recently held in Stockholm. Like last year, we’re proud to say that it was a really successful event with renowned speakers and fruitful discussions.
We are very proud of the fact that Ernie Allen agreed to write the keynote to the 2017 report. Allen is an adviser to governments, law enforcement and technology companies. He was appointed by the then Prime Minister David Cameron to chair the Global Initiative WePROTECT, which has the task of combating online child abuse and exploitation.
