Report Box and Project ESCAPE
Report Box is a technical solution developed by the ESCAPE Project.
The ESCAPE project (Funded by End Violence Against Children) represents INHOPE's vision to put an eco-system in place ensuring that every industry stakeholder and each member of the public around the globe has the option and awareness to report child sexual abuse material (CSAM) encountered online.
Reports received in this eco-system that contain new and unknown CSAM will be assessed by experienced hotline analysts and relayed to specialised police investigators for immediate action. The system will provide the analysts with automation and intelligence tools for smarter and faster prioritisation and classification of reports allowing them to focus on the most urgent and relevant cases, saving valuable time. Reports that contain known CSAM will be taken down as quickly as possible to prevent further circulation and downloads.
This vision has four core components:
- Public and industry awareness of the legal and/or moral need and possibility to report
- Additional and sustainable reporting options being created
- Resilient and trained hotline analysts
- Global eco-system receiving and processing the reports
