Virtual Conference, 22-23 September


23-year-old James in Paris stumbles across CSAM, horrified by what he sees and unsure of what to do, he is immediately worried he could get arrested.

James determines he must do something, so he searches the web for solutions and finds French hotline ‘Point de Contact’. Two minutes later, having filed a report, he feels a weight off his shoulders. James’ report is sent to NCMEC’s CyberTipline as the hosting provider is based in America. 30 hours after James comes across CSAM, it is gone.

Society cannot rely on James alone.

Help James! Join the INHOPE Summit and learn from industry experts.
