Last week NetClean took part in a special meeting focusing on crimes against children, including child sexual abuse content, at INTERPOL's headquarters in Lyon. Operational specialists and investigators plus a few companies from around the world were invited to the four day meeting. The participants showed considerable interest in NetClean Analyze, a program developed for police authorities working with child sexual abuse material.
This was the 28th time INTERPOL's experts in the field have met since the resolution* was adopted in Dakar in 1992, and the specialist group was formed. The purpose of the Lyon meeting was to improve cooperation between entities, and to exchange knowledge and experience.
- We are very thankful for all the hard work that police authorities worldwide put into stopping child sexual abuse content. As a result of their joint efforts more sexual abuse material can be identified and stopped and the victimised children are saved from further abuse. NetClean is proud to be playing its part in making the police's work easier and more effective, says Christian Sjöberg, CEO for NetClean.
NetClean Analyze has been developed in cooperation with police authorities worldwide. The software improves the quality and minimises the work required in investigating child sexual abuse material. It does this by enabling effective categorisation and identification of child sexual abuse photographs and videos. NetClean Analyze also provides a good basis for bringing criminal charges.
- One of the big advantages of NetClean Analyze is that it is, in its entirety, adapted for use by the end users with their work flow. Receiving such a positive response directly from the police who use the product was great. It is, of course, also very important for us to know that the product is technologically sound and that it is user friendly, says Johann Hofmann, Product manager for NetClean Analyze.
Today NetClean Analyze is used by 25 police authorities in 15 countries.
- The meeting in Lyon presented us with a great opportunity to talk to potential users from all corners of the globe. Our goal is to make NetClean Analyze the natural choice of police authorities as their investigation tool in cases concerning child sexual abuse material. This is, without a doubt, achievable, concludes Christian Sjöberg.
