Hyperslice joins IWF's mission to eradicate online child sexual abuse

Published:  Wed 8 Sep 2021

A “Leading independent managed hosting provider” has joined the IWF in its battle to eradicate videos and images of child sexual abuse from the internet.

Leeds based Managed IT Solutions group, Hyperslice, owner of the eukhost and Webhosting UK brands, has becoming a Member of the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), the UK charity dedicated to finding and removing child sexual abuse material from the internet.

Robert King, Director of Hyperslice, said: “As the UK’s leading independent managed hosting provider, we are committed to making the internet a safer place for children.

“Our membership of the IWF reflects our full support for its aims to eradicate online child sexual abuse and protect those children exploited by it.”

Susie Hargreaves, Chief Executive of the IWF, said: “Internet predators will use all means at their disposal to access, groom, and abuse children, and to share and distribute images and footage of that abuse.

“Knowing this material is still being passed around can cast a pall over victims and prevent them from ever fully recovering from their abuse. Knowing partners like Hyperslice are onside and helping us in this fight is vital.”

Hyperslice joins the IWF at a critical time. In 2020, IWF analysts dealt with a record number of reports of online child sexual abuse material, while the coronavirus crisis has seen more people than ever relying on the internet to learn, work, and socialise.
