WEBCAST MAY 2 – topDNS Best Practice Webinar: A partnership to empower domain name registries to disrupt CSAM

ISOC LIVEOn Thursday May 2, 2024, at 5pm-6pm CEST (15:00-16:00 UTC) Public Interest Registry (PIR), Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) & eco’s topDNS Initiative will host a webinar ‘A partnership to empower domain name registries to disrupt CSAM‘. The session will introduce a new partnership that will empower all domain name registries to disrupt sites dedicated to the commercial distribution and exploitation of online child sexual abuse material (CSAM), announced in February.

The new program includes a pioneering sponsorship agreement whereby PIR will sponsor other registries and registry service providers with free access to two key IWF services, Domain Alerts and the Top-Level Domain (TLD) Hopping List. TLD hopping is a practice whereby criminal websites are taken offline only to reappear, often with the same content and name, but under a different top-level domain. With more registries having access to the lists, there will be fewer places for criminals running abuse “brands” to try to register their sites.
