    Tech Against Terrorism E-learning Webinar Series

    For the last Tech Against Terrorism and GIFCT webinar of 2021, we will look back at key events of the year – from the January 6 US Capitol storming to the Taliban gaining control of Afghanistan – and reflect on how the terrorist and violent extremist online threat landscape has evolved alongside the offline environment. We will discuss how the 2021 evolving threat landscape has led tech companies to adapt their counterterrorism policies and how they enforce Trust & Safety on their services. We will also reflect on the evolution of the global online regulatory landscape and how recent regulations proposals on illegal and harmful content online were influenced by major events of 2021. Together with an expert panel, we will discuss the various challenges of responding to a fast and constantly evolving threat landscape, whilst ensuring that users’ fundamental rights online are not infringed. In particular, we will focus on how smaller and newer tech platforms can swiftly adapt to the evolution of the threat and regulatory landscapes.

    Tech Against Terrorism E-learning Webinar Series

    For this Tech Against Terrorism & GIFCT webinar, we will discuss moderating online terrorist content and safeguarding human rights. As governments around the world have increased their counterterrorism operations, concerns have been raised by observers, civil society groups, and experts about the potentially negative impact on human rights such operations might have. Likewise, as tech sector collective efforts to counter terrorism online have increased in recent years, so has the critical examination of the risk such initiatives can pose to human rights and fundamental freedoms. Together with an expert panel, we will examine the various challenges related to human rights and freedom of expression that tech companies face when moderating online content. We will also explore a variety of methods and support mechanisms that are in place for tech companies to moderate online content while safeguarding human rights.
