DATABASES, A TOOL TO DISRUPT THE DISSEMINATION OF CHILD ABUSE IMAGES IN DIGITAL ENVIRONMENTS
The session will address the types and purposes of the wide range of existing databases – image, hash value, etc. – and the role those repositories of data play in disrupting the circulation of child abuse images in digital environments. Examples will be shared on how law enforcement, online reporting mechanisms for illegal content and private companies use these databases to track, detect, block or store data for criminal investigation purposes. The session is also designed to explore existing challenges such as data sharing between data repositories, data corruption, and categorization of videos and images of child abuse.
