Tech Against Terrorism is a UN-mandated project that helps tech companies prevent their platforms from being exploited by terrorists, while also respecting human rights. The project supports tech companies through practical capacity building and knowledge sharing, and aims to galvanise the tech sector in improving industry-led self-regulation. In 2017, Tech Against Terrorism launched the Knowledge Sharing Platform, a collection of tool that startups and smaller tech companies can use to better protect themselves from terrorist exploitation of their services. Tech Against Terrorism also advocates a more coherent and systematic approach to fighting terrorist use of technology, and encourages partnerships and cooperation between tech companies and governments.
