How to Manage the Spread of Content During Online Crisis Events
G20 government leaders at the June 2019 Japan Summit have agreed to look at implementing an Internet content blocking system for online crisis events.
What does this mean and how do we execute this in each country and connect the world in real time?
Social media companies, in the wake of terrorist attacks, are acting to remove terrorist content from the Internet; however, it continues to slip through very fast and spread across the world in minutes.
Social media executives also face increased pressure based on the results of the latest G20 Summit, where leaders insist that terrorist and violent extremism conducive to terrorism (VECT) content must be removed from social media platforms. The GIFCT (Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism) is doing important work on this front, but more needs to be done.
Let’s explore how Netsweeper can help block content on a country-wide, worldwide level.
How does it work?
Netsweeper’s country-wide ISP content blocking system can:
- Provide and implement an Internet content blocking system for online crisis events for your country and the world
- Centrally manage this for your country and for the world
- Reciprocate and crowd source content, country to country in milliseconds
- Create a jurisdictional ring around your country’s virtual networks
- Centrally block the proliferation of offensive content in milli-seconds preventing exponential viral spreading of these extreme videos and web pages
- Instant blocking of infected malware/virus infected web site links with the Netsweeper Crisis Filter Platform preventing DDos attacks, device and network infection
- Create custom landing pages for blocked domains
- Assist to determine whether the material is sufficiently serious to warrant blocking
- Send automated notifications to regulatory bodies
- Alert a suspect issue or URL visit allowing the eSafety Commissioner to then take action and get proper warrants to overcome privacy concern
- Use the CTIRU list (Counter Terrorism Information Referral Unit) which includes a list of over 5000 terrorism related websites and content
- Share best practices from the many countries who’ve installed Netsweeper
