International Association of Internet Hotlines (InHope)


Countries involved:
The Netherlands

With support from Safe Online, the International Association of Internet Hotlines (INHOPE) launched the programme – ESCAPE – to develop automation and intelligence tools for faster classification of CSAM reporting. These tools will allow hotline analysts and law enforcement officers to focus on the most urgent cases of abuse, allowing professionals to reach those most in need of urgent support as soon as possible. Through this project, CSAM will be removed as soon as possible, preventing further circulation and re-victimisation of children. This project has a global reach.

Now in 2022, INHOPE is creating a new project, ‘Global Standard – a common CSAM classification’. This is a global common language (ontology) for helpline and hotline analysts and law enforcement officers to classify CSAM. Following the Global Standard, an interoperable global CSAM hash set will be created and exchanged between hotlines, law enforcement and industry for CSAM detection & removal.
