AviaTor Seminar

Report prioritisation in the future landscape

AviaTor Seminar 2023:
The future of report prioritisation

Millions of CSAM reports are sent to NCMEC by US-based ESPs every year. The sheer volume of these reports burdens law enforcement with the huge and sometimes impossible task of processing them all. In the meantime, new EU legislation around industry reporting is just around the corner.

It is time to have a conversation between all stakeholders about the future of industry reporting!

Join us, in person, for a day of expert presentations, panel discussions and new insights with representatives from law enforcement, industry, ESPs from both the US and Europe, specialized technological partners and the European Commission to talk about how we can work towards standardisation within CSAM reporting.

Please secure your spot at the AviaTor Seminar taking place in Brussels on March 30th, 2023 at NH Brussels EU Berlaymont. Registration for this event closes on March 1st 2023 or sooner, if maximum capacity is reached.
