Jean-Christophe Le Toquin

Board Member

Why do you think INHOPE is important?

Global regulation of illegal content needs an international operational mechanism, like INHOPE, which upholds the rule of law, transparency and good governance.

What do you see as the biggest challenge for INHOPE in the next five years?

The biggest challenge we face is to convince all of our different stakeholders – hotlines, platforms, law enforcement agencies, governments - that they have more to win by collaborating and sharing information.

Why did you decide to become a part of the INHOPE board?

I witnessed the world entering into a new phase of regulation against the production, distribution and exchange of illegal content and child sexual abuse material (CSAM) in particular, to an extent unseen since the early 2000s.

What is your vision for the future?

We have a responsibility to build a robust, sustainable, rule-of-law based global platform that brings transparency to the issue of CSAM. To drastically reduce the availability of criminal content in real-time, and to demonstrate that humanity cares.

If you could change one thing about the internet, what would it be?

The internet should integrate a culture of Trust & Safety by design. We must take immediate action and invest in mitigating the damages from services and products that are launched without premeditating how criminals will abuse them and children.
