The vision of the GIFCT is to prevent terrorists and violent extremists from exploiting digital platforms.

The Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism brings together the technology industry, government, civil society, and academia to foster collaboration and information-sharing to counter terrorist and violent extremist activity online.

GIFCT’s strategic planning and programming centers on three pillars:



Equipping digital platforms and civil society groups with awareness, knowledge, and tools to develop sustainable programs to disrupt terrorist and violent extremist activity online



Bringing together key stakeholders to mitigate the impact of a terrorist or violent extremist attack



Supporting cutting-edge, practical research efforts at the intersection of extremism and technology
