Fiber broadband provider Converge ICT Solutions Inc. has joined the UK-based Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) in clamping down on internet sexual abuse against children anywhere in the world.
Converge joins the ranks of global technology companies such as Facebook, Google, Apple, Twitter, and TikTok on the fight against online sexual abuse and exploitation of children.
“The Internet is growing all the time. Sadly, it is also being abused more than ever. We know internet predators will use all means at their disposal to access, groom, and abuse children, and to share and distribute images and footage of that abuse. Knowing this material is still being passed around can cast a pall over victims and prevent them from ever fully recovering from their abuse,” IWF chief executive Susie Hargreaves said.
“As we continue to grow, so does our responsibility to ensure a safe digital experience for everyone,” Converge CEO Dennis Anthony Uy said.
“We are committed to be an advocate of a safer digital environment for children and to ensure the digital highway we are envisioning to benefit Filipinos will not be used as an avenue for exploitation and abuse by online predators,” Uy added.
