TAT & GIFCT E-learning Session
Moderation Online: Beyond Content
24 May 2022 5pm – 6pm BST
This webinar is organised in partnership with the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism (GIFCT).
For our May webinar of the 2022 Tech Against Terrorism & GIFCT e-learning series, we take an in-depth look into how terrorist and violent extremist actors use technology services for operational purposes. Research into terrorist use of the internet has a strong focus on strategic communications and external messaging, such as propaganda targeting the public and recruitment messaging campaigns. However, terrorist and violent extremist use of the internet for operational purposes, such as internal communication and attack planning, presents a new set of challenges for counterterrorism practitioners and tech platforms. This operational use often occurs more covertly than external messaging, generally in private online spaces. In this webinar, we will discuss how terrorist and violent extremist actors use a range of tech platforms and their features for operational use, such as internal communication and coordination. We will also discuss the challenges in effectively countering terrorist and violent extremist use of the internet, while safeguarding human rights and freedom of expression.
As always, this webinar session will finish with a Q&A session that is open to all attendees.
More information about the speakers and the agenda will be shared soon.
