15,000 images and thousands of video files found after alert from company computer

The following is actual case from a global company that uses software to detect child sexual abuse material on work computers.

In 2020 the company’s security department in Sweden received an alert that one of their employees had accessed child sexual abuse material using the company computer. Information about the incident was forwarded to the police who verified the content as illegal and initiated an investigation.

The suspect was brought into custody and early on confessed to possession of child sexual abuse material. During the house search the police found several mobile phones, computers and an external hard drive, which were confiscated and examined for further evidence. When all seized devices had been analysed, the police had found more than 15,000 images and nearly 4,000 video files depicting child sexual abuse.

The suspect was found guilty in court and sentenced to two years in prison.
