The number of illegal online child sexual abuse images has increased significantly, finds a new report.

The document, released today by the Internet Watch Foundation, reveals that there has been a 417% increase in reports of instances of online child sexual abuse imagery over the last two years.

The IWF is a not-for-profit organisation that searches for child sexual abuse images and videos and allows the public to report them anonymously removed. It also complies a database of related search terms. It is supported by the global internet industry and the European Commission.

NetSupport has worked alongside the IWF to ensure the Keyword and Phrase Monitoring feature in NetSupport DNA (Education Edition) is up-to-date with the latest keyword databases, in order to provide schools with insight into and alerts from, any activity by a student that might suggest that they are engaged in activity that would place them at risk.
