A unique position to
make a difference
As ethical corporate citizens, businesses and organisations can stop child sexual abuse material in their IT environments and directly limit the revictimisation that children suffer every time an image is shared.
Smartphones are used to access child sexual abuse material
Mobile phones and tablets are increasingly used to access, consume, share and store child sexual abuse material. By blocking access to child sexual abuse material on mobile devices provided to employees, businesses can stop illegal activity and the revictimisation of children.
Child sexual abuse material on company devices – a tangible security risk
1 in 500 individuals look at child sexual abuse material while at work.
Half of those who consume child sexual abuse material abuse children physically.
64% of all organisations have experienced a case of CSAM in the last 5 years.
Demonstrate ethical corporate citizenship
Sustainable businesses and organisations are increasingly acting as ethical corporate citizens ensuring the welfare and future of stakeholders outside their immediate core business. Taking action to stop child sexual abuse material from being accessed with company assets and directly limit the revictimisation that children suffer every time an image is shared is a tangible way for businesses to demonstrate ethical citizenship.
Prevent illegal activities on company assets
Accessing child sexual abuse material is a serious crime, which is why protecting mobile devices is a legal matter. Employers can work to prevent crimes from occurring by blocking access to those web sites.
Ensure policy compliance
Most businesses have a company policy that either explicitly or inexplicitly state that is unacceptable to view or download illegal material such as child sexual abuse material on company assets, whether it be in the workplace or outside working hours.
