Roll up, roll up! Last chance to join IWF and Banco Santander’s first ever hackathon!

Published:  Tue 3 Jul 2018

In 2017, the IWF saw an increase in the use of disguised websites to hide webpages showing child sexual abuse imagery. As more and more offenders use technical methods to disguise the distribution of online child sexual abuse, we need to fight back with technology too.

On Saturday 14th July 2018, the IWF and Banco Santander are coming together to host the first ever IWF Online Child Safety Hackathon.

The IWF is calling all engineers, developers, cyber security experts and individuals who have awesome tech skills, to come together and work on some incredible projects to stop offenders distributing child sexual abuse material on the internet. Tickets are going fast, but there’s still time to register. Don’t miss your chance to take part!

The hackathon is a free, one-day event in central London and you are invited to take part and do your bit to find create technological solutions. Projects include data harvesting, catalogue/hashing and OSINT/SOCMINT.

You can grab your ticket here: www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/internet-watch-foundation-hackathon-tickets-47163376930 And be sure to follow us @iwfhotline and @dcuthbert for ongoing announcements.

See you on the 14th July, to build some solutions and make a real difference to the victims of online child sexual abuse.
