Tech professionals: Are you interested in the intersection of technology and terrorism? Do you want to learn more about how the internet is being exploited by terrorist and violent extremist groups? Do you want to learn how you can protect your platform and your users from terrorist exploitation?

Government representatives: Are you interested in learning more about the online environment that terrorists exploit? Do you want to learn more about how your government can support and encourage the local tech scene in tackling terrorist exploitation and engage with big tech firms?

Civil society organisations and academia: Are you an expert in counter-terrorism, counter-radicalisation or counter-narrative messaging? Do you want to play an active role in supporting the tech and government sectors in tackling terrorist exploitation of the internet?

Tech Against Terrorism is an initiative launched and supported by UN CTED, which supports the tech industry through developing practical tools and advice for companies. As a public-private partnership, we work with tech companies, civil society, and governments across the world to coordinate tech responses to terrorist exploitation of the internet whilst respecting human rights. Our workstreams cover fintech, e-commerce, social media, encrypted messaging, transport tech, content storage and file-sharing.

During the first half of the event (9am – 12 noon), we invite academics, companies, governments, and civil society organisations to share assessments of the terrorist threat and discuss emerging responses to this challenge. In the second half (1pm – 4pm), tech companies will be able to participate in Tech Against Terrorism’s in-person training workshop to help build capacity against terrorist exploitation. You will:

  • Gain expert insight through declassified threat assessments of terrorist exploitation
  • Participate in best practice and knowledge sharing with leading industry experts
  • Learn more about our Knowledge Sharing Platform and the Data Science Network
  • Find out how you can become a Member or an Associate Partner

Through this event, we will establish a workstream to build support for industry self-regulation to tackle terrorist exploitation of the internet. Whether you are a tech company, civil society organisation, or government official, this is your chance to make your voice heard.
