A Deep Dive into the INHOPE hotlines' Notice and Takedown procedures
Dushica Naumovska, INHOPE Project Manager, details the steps taken between Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM) being reported to one of our hotlines, and that CSAM being removed from the web page. This process is known as "Notice and Takedown".
