INHOPE is the leading global network combatting online Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM). The Network consists of 46 hotlines in 42 countries that provide the public with a way to anonymously report illegal content online with a focus on CSAM. INHOPE is based in the Netherlands and their member Hotlines operate in all EU member states, Russia, South Africa, North & South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
IHC has been working with INHOPE since 2015 to eradicate child sexual abuse material online. Where needed, we will contact INHOPE or their Hotline members in different countries to facilitate notice and takedown actions with law enforcement or Internet industry to remove illegal content from the Internet.
Our hotline analysts receive training and technical support from INHOPE directly. INHOPE also helps us with the technical maintenance of the Hotline system and access to ICCAM for analyzing, classifying and recording reports.
