Under the motto “Digital First Responders”, INHOPE (International Association of Internet Hotlines) is organising a digital summit on 21 and 22 September 2021. Speakers from various areas of society, like politics, business and the Internet industry, have been invited in order to exchange ideas and experience regarding combatting depictions of child abuse in the Internet.
With Digital First Responders, INHOPE addresses the contact points for users for the reporting and take-down of illegal material on the Internet. Following the online event on 22 September, at 6.45pm, Peter-Paul Urlaub, attorney with the eco Complaints Office will be leading a workshop on this topic. Urlaub‘s presentation will provide insight into the legal perspective of the safe deletion of illegal Internet content via hotlines. Anyone interested in attending can register here for this year’s INHOPE Summit.
INHOPE pursues the vision of an online world that is free of CSAM (Child Sexual Abuse Material), to achieve which the organisation created an international network of to date more than 46 hotlines in 42 countries. The eco Association is one of the founding members of the network. As the Internet knows no borders, the network wants to make cross-border criminal prosecution, especially of CSAM, possible.
