Tech Against Terrorism is a UN-mandated initiative that helps tech companies prevent their platforms from being exploited by terrorists, while also respecting human rights. Tech Against Terrorism works with the global tech sector to share best practice (policy, guidelines, learning materials, practical workshops, and tools) within the tech industry and with governments. The vast majority of our work is based on our consultations with tech companies across the world.
In 2017, Tech Against Terrorism launched the Knowledge Sharing Platform, a collection of tool that startups and small tech companies can use to better protect themselves from the terrorist exploitation of their services. In 2018, we will look to create proactive technological tools to help protect tech companies through our ‘Data Science Network’, which will be launched in Montreal in March 2018.
Tech Against Terrorism advocates industry self-regulation in addition to a more coherent and systematic approach to fighting the terrorist use of technology. The initiative encourages partnerships and cooperation between tech companies and governments.
Tech Against Terrorism collaborates with the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism, founded by Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Microsoft.
