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:



Delivering critical information and the capacity to prevent and disrupt terrorist and violent extremist activity online



Coordinating and continually strengthening the tech ecosystem’s response to the online impacts of terrorist or violent extremist incidents



Convening industry, experts, and civil society to understand emerging trends relating to technology, terrorism, and violent extremism
