Even when online platforms have effective prevention measures in place it is possible that CSOs will still use these platforms to exploit and abuse children. As such, it is necessary to have robust processes in place to identify online CSAE when it occurs. Below are some tips as to how you can identify online CSAE activity on your platform:
Scan and monitor your services for presence of IIOC – for example using hash lists of known IIOC, Microsoft PhotoDNA and Google AI which prioritizes most likely IIOC content for review.
