Today the IWF have announced that 12 UK overseas territories will roll-out the IWF Reporting Portal, which provides a quick and easy way for web users in the 12 new territories to safely and anonymously report online images and videos of child sexual abuse.

A team of experienced IWF analysts then work directly with the internet industry and law enforcement, to have the abusive imagery removed quickly.

Susie Hargreaves, IWF CEO says: “This is a ground-breaking initiative for us, the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office and the territories involved. We’re now able to provide a first class Reporting Portal to protect the citizens in each of these territories. Child sexual abuse imagery is a global problem and we can only fight it with a truly global solution.”

NetSupport continues to work alongside the IWF to ensure the new Keyword and Phrase Monitoring feature in IT asset management solution, NetSupport DNA (Education Edition), is up-to-date with the latest keyword databases. This helps provide schools with insight into and alerts from, any activity by a student that might suggest that they are engaged in activity placing them at risk. NetSupport DNA also enables students to report any concerns they may have – in confidence – to a trusted member of staff. These safeguarding tools and more, are supplied as part of ITAM solution NetSupport DNA which is already helping schools to manage their IT assets, reduce operational costs and improve system security.
