Image and video distribution is a continual threat for every victim of child sexual abuse material, and the pathways for takedown and removal can seem daunting and fruitless. However, NCMEC’s new developments, upcoming tools, and expansion of notifications offer victims/survivors hope for a life not bound by their images. This session will review NCMEC’s Notice and Takedown Program and will cover step-by-step methods for image/video notification to websites, companies, registrars, registries and more, including utilizing the new Take It Down service as well as the new CyberTipline public reporting form. Presenters will cover findings from the program and discuss the expanding types of content the team has advocated successfully for removal - from survivor PII to CSAM material and the range in between. Learn how to apply these resources to your cases and how you can give children and young adult victims hope by changing the narrative on image distribution, giving them tools to take content removal into their own hands or connecting them to NCMEC notice tracking advocates to notify companies on their behalf.
