EU data row threatens child abuse investigations
« dnia: Luty 23, 2021, 10:36:53 am »

Global internet firms could be banned from automatically detecting child abuse images on their systems from as early as next Monday, amid a row over privacy laws within the European Union.

The companies voluntarily assist police across the UK and Europe but face being forced to stop the work.

Talks are ongoing to try and create an exemption for the tech giants.

Child safety experts say if the row is unresolved the law will inadvertently make it easier for abusers.

The threat to the investigations has been triggered by attempts in the European Parliament to protect private online communications from monitoring by internet companies.

However, the new rules could prevent those same companies using software to automatically scan for child sexual abuse material going through their systems.

The tools developed over a decade can identify:

Newly-created violent and exploitative images that have not yet been logged by investigators
Online conversations which have the hallmarks of abusers grooming victims
On Thursday, talks in Brussels between the European Parliament, Commission officials and representatives of the member states will attempt to agree how to exempt the internet companies from the incoming privacy law.

If those talks fail, the law will ban the use of the most automated tools that sweep through million of communications, before passing leads and patterns on to law enforcement agencies.

'Further harm'
John Carr, secretary of the UK Children's Charities' Coalition on Internet Safety and a globally-recognised expert in the field, warned that time was running out to ensure all of the detection work would continue.  สล็อต ฝาก-ถอน true wallet

"If Brussels does not change this law or put it on hold... sexual predators will have an easier time contacting children," said Mr Carr.

"There will be more videos of children being raped available for people to view or download.

"The latter not only does further harm to the children depicted in the videos, to the extent such material also encourages or sustains paedophile behaviour, it puts children as yet unharmed in danger in every country in the world."
