The GIFCT-Tech Against Terrorism Partnership
Originally launched by the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Executive Directorate (UN CTED) in 2016, Tech Against Terrorism (TaT) partners with GIFCT on two key initiatives: mentorship of platforms interested in joining GIFCT and knowledge sharing within the tech industry and across the private, public, and civil society sectors.
There are five key parts to the GIFCT-TaT mentorship program:
2. In-depth Assessment
3. Resources and Pledge
4. Policy Support
The Knowledge-Sharing Platform is a collection of tools that startups and small tech companies can use to better protect themselves from terrorist and violent extremist exploitation of their services.
