In November, the Child Dignity Alliance’s Technical Working Group’s (TWG) published its first report. Chaired by Australian eSafety Commissioner, Julie Inman-Grant, the TWG was charged with examining the role of technology in combatting the proliferation of online child sexual exploitation and abuse imagery. Its formation enabled nine online safety and child protection experts, influencers and leaders - including 5Rights Chair, Baroness Kidron OBE, as well as John Carr OBE, Peter Mackay and others - to collectively highlight what can be done to combat online child sexual abuse.
The culmination of six months’ work, the group’s report contains a total of 15 recommendations relating to initiatives for government, law enforcement and industry, as well as for joint initiatives across sectors.
