Further Protection for Internet Users in Channel Islands

Published:  Tue 17 Jun 2014

Sure, an Internet Service Provider (ISP) based in the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, has re-joined Internet Watch Foundation Membership to increase their systems security.

With a strong emphasis on security, Sure has renewed its membership with the IWF to protect users from stumbling across child sexual abuse imagery on their networks.

Founded in 1896, as an established independent telephone system for the islands, Sure now provides telecommunications including mobile, internet, TV and home phone packages.

Eddie Saints, CEO of Sure, said: “Sure has been wholeheartedly committed to doing what it can to ensure island youngsters are safe online and not able to access to unsuitable images. We have been very involved in the e-safety strategy in Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man and our experienced staff have given advice to hundreds of parents and guardians on the steps they can take to reduce the risk

“Joining the IWF is a natural step for Sure. Our membership of will ensure that we are at the forefront of advice and technology we give to customers but also adds our weight to the growing global voice against child abuse.”

Susie Hargreaves, IWF CEO, said: “We welcome Sure to Membership and their support for our work. Our partnership can only benefit the public by protecting them from stumbling across child sexual abuse imagery and funding vital research to further disrupt the distribution of this content.”
