Moderation Gateway is the latest Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) Member, joining a worldwide community of 111 organisations dedicated to the fight against online child sexual abuse content. The IWF and its Member organisations are committed to the shared vision of an Internet free of child sexual abuse content.
Susie Hargreaves, IWF Chief Executive, said: “I am delighted to welcome Moderation Gateway into IWF Membership. It is vital that moderators know what to do if they encounter child sexual abuse content posted in their communities. Our partnership with Moderation Gateway ensures that training includes information of what and when to report to the IWF; empowering moderators to do the right thing and react appropriately to online criminal content.”
Lisa Craven, CEO Moderation Gateway said: “Any organisation that encourages UGC as part of its online strategy should be evaluating and managing both the risks and rewards of that user engagement. It is essential that moderators are trained professionally so they are equipped with the necessary skills to identify and report dangerous and illegal online activity. Moderation plays a vital role in keeping the Internet safe and we look forward to working with the IWF to raise awareness and help drive a new industry standard for UGC moderation.”
