dns joins the Internet Watch Foundation

Dns : 04 August, 2009  (Company News)
System monitoring experts join the fight against illegal content by becoming members of the Internet Watch Foundation
dns, a key player in the managed security services industry, has become a member of the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF).

dns' team of dedicated experts monitor systems and devices 24/7, helping to guard against external, and increasingly, threats from within. The consultancy has been helping companies protect themselves and their employees from all varieties of cyber attacks and unwanted content by working closely with them to set up and maintain up to date security policies. With this in mind, dns is constantly tasked with identifying new threats and their origins, which means the company is in a perfect position to pinpoint any cyber crimes and illegal content that may be found online.

The IWF is the UK internet 'Hotline' for the public to report their inadvertent exposure to online child sexual abuse content hosted anywhere in the world, criminally obscene content and incitement to racial hatred hosted in the UK. Through working closely with the online sector, law enforcement, the government and the public, the IWF aims to foster trust and confidence in the internet among current and future users; assist service providers in combating the abuse of their systems and to assist law enforcement in the fight against online illegal content.

By working with the IWF, dns is helping to report any potentially illegal content and supporting the work that aims to shut down child sexual abuse sites and prevent access to them, reducing the risk of public exposure to this content.

Peter Robbins OBE, QPM, Chief Executive of the IWF, said: 'Self-regulation is at the core of the IWF's model, operations and success. It is the support of our industry members which means we can continue to disrupt illegal online content hosted in the UK and, through our international partnerships, around the world. We are therefore delighted to welcome dns as a member and look forward to working with them to protect internet users and promote a safer online experience."

Graeme Cox, CEO, dns, said: "The IWF is doing such an amazing job protecting the online community that we were thrilled to join it in the fight against illegal content. It just seemed like a perfect fit for dns and IWF to join forces in this battle. With dedicated teams at dns working 24/7, constantly looking at threats and illegal online activity, it was simply a natural progression for us to work more closely with an organisation like the IWF."
