INHOPE Summit 2024

Hybrid Event

Our seventh INHOPE Summit will be a hybrid event taking place on October 8 & 9. Day 1 (October 8) will be online and in-person, while Day 2 (October 9) will be exclusively in-person. This year's INHOPE Summit theme is 'Knowledge is Power, Reporting is Action.' The focus of this year's Summit explores public awareness, education and the private trade and commercialisation of CSAM. The spread of CSAM online is enormous and therefore the role of reporting is essential, but we face major challenges that surround our society’s understanding of CSAM as well as tackling the economic link to CSAM.

The first day of the Summit will focus on the importance of societal change. We are not talking about a singular message we are talking about a united approach to promote public reporting. Members of this year’s Summit will be joining to participate in active discussions to create and share messaging to tackle child sexual abuse and exploitation material online. As a global organisation, we can see there is a serious need for national notification. And the current lack of public knowledge about the existence of child sexual abuse material (CSAM) online is a huge problem. With the growing challenges around Non-Consensual Intimate Image (NCII) abuse and self-generated child sexual abuse material (CSAM) we need to focus on prevention as AI hugely multiplies reports and overwhelms capacity.

The second day is aimed at the illegal production, distribution and consumption of CSAM. We will follow the path of financial transactions that take place as we break down the demand and supply of CSAM worldwide. The first half of the day will explore the collaboration between law enforcement, financial sectors and online platforms. In-person registrations are limited and all registrants are subject to approval
