Effectively today, CYREN is an official Member of the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), the UK internet Hotline for anyone to report their exposure to online child sexual abuse imagery hosted anywhere in the world, non-photographic child sexual abuse images and criminally obscene adult content hosted in the UK. The IWF works in partnership with the online industry, government, police and the public.
CYREN is now receiving feeds with URLs classified by IWF as child abuse images – and adding those to our database. Providing this new categorization allows our customers to block those images and related content. Also, CYREN is taking part in IWF’s self certification process (SCP).
“CYREN strongly supports IWF’s mission. We are excited to be working with them to help stop the dissemination of child sexual abuse images. Armed with IWF’s upcoming feeds, CYREN will be able to provide its customers with a more effective way to block these materials in email and on the Web,” says Dan Maier, vice president of marketing at CYREN.
