About Us

Tech Against Terrorism

Tech Against Terrorism supports the global technology sector in responding to terrorist use of the internet whilst respecting human rights, with an explicit focus on supporting those smaller tech platforms with fewer resources to address the urgent threat of terrorist exploitation. We work closely with the United Nations, the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism (GIFCT), dozens of smaller tech platforms, democratic governments, and civil society.

Online Harms Foundation

The Online Harms Foundation implements the UN-supported public-private partnership Tech Against Terrorism in partnership with the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism (GIFCT). In 2020 we relaunched as the Online Harms Foundation in order to broaden the practical support we offer to smaller tech platforms to include countering the terrorist use of the internet, child sexual abuse material (CSAM), hate speech, online scams, and disinformation whilst respecting human rights.
