Today is Safer Internet Day 2018
Today is Safer Internet Day around the world. Organizations around the world are coming together to acknowledge the progress we have made to create a better internet for everyone.
Safer Internet Day and Netsweeper
At Netsweeper, we provide the technology that tracks and categorizes content that is harmful, inappropriate or a threat to any end user, young or old. Trained in 30+ languages, and with over 90 available categories, The Netsweeper is the first web content filtering to develop and use a form of hybrid “AI” (Artificial Intelligence) technology to scan content, assign content to categories, and update its filter system without human intervention in real-time. With millions of web pages being posted each day, this artificial intelligence engine has the capacity to keep pace with the massive growth of online content. Our technology encourages responsible, respectful, critical and creative e-learning and online activities.
For some organizations we are more than just a partner. Netsweeper has been a proud partner of the IWF since 2006, incorporating and contributing to their website watchlist. In July 2017, Netsweeper and IWF announced that we will be working together globally to detect and stop child sexual abuse imagery on the internet by adopting the Image Hash List and Photo DNA Technology to continue our mission of creating a safer and more secure web environment.
How we Help Make the Internet a Safer Place Daily
We work closely with organizations including the Internet Watch Foundation, UK Safer Internet Centre, Cybertip.ca, emPSN and many more to help identify and remove access to criminally related web pages and harmful content. We incorporate content provided by those organizations directly into our solution to keep students safe from illegal and inappropriate content online.
This year’s Safer Internet Day theme is “Create, connect and share respect: a better internet starts with you”, Netsweeper works daily to ensure this motto is is a top priority. We believe a safe internet experience is a right that all internet users around the globe should have.
