We are pleased to release our 2022 Annual Report, which includes our 2022 Transparency Report.
This report highlights how the Tech Coalition has tapped into our diverse member base - in services, size, and approach - to strengthen our efforts to combat online harm. Significant highlights include:
55% of our members have partially or fully aligned with Trust: Voluntary Framework for Industry Transparency. The Tech Coalition released this framework for transparency reporting in June 2022, following a consultation process with civil society and government. The Trust Framework provides flexible guidance to tech companies seeking to build trust and demonstrate accountability to expand the conversation on combating online child sexual exploitation and abuse (OCSEA).
22 member companies submit supplemental reports to better support law enforcement in their efforts to investigate and prosecute offenses, an increase from 18 member companies in 2021.
Launch of the Tech Coalition’s Video Hash Interoperability Alpha Project, giving companies the opportunity to leverage hashes previously in a form incompatible with their technical solutions, expanding the capabilities to remove child sexual abuse materials for participating member companies
A collective increase in the adoption of video and image hashing tools across the leading types of hashing technologies.
In 2023, we remain committed to building upon these efforts alongside our members and stakeholders. Amid the ever-changing tech landscape and the persistent threats to children online, one thing remains abundantly clear: no single platform, company, or sector can address the issue alone. It demands collaboration, cross-sector coordination, and a whole-society approach. Only by working together can we create a safer online world for kids.
