2024-07-10

Reading Time: mins

In her role at NASK, PPHS’s expert on countering and preventing child sexual abuse and exploitation (CSAE), Katarzyna Staciwa, contributed to a TVN news story emphasising the importance of safeguarding children’s privacy online. The report advises against posting images that reveal too much personal information, encourages the use of privacy settings, and stresses the need for parental control tools and open communication.

Emerging Trends

With the rise of generative AI, being vigilant is crucial. Importantly, the awareness of the scale and significance of these challenges is essential. All stakeholders, including parents, tech companies, and law enforcement, must contribute to creating safer online environments for our children. Society must utilise systems and technologies to proactively detect and remove harmful content.

Foundations for the Foundation

PPHS is helping to establish the Heard Silence organisation in Poland. The new Foundation will be dedicated to preventing child sexual abuse and exploitation through various actions, including comprehensive education and awareness programs. The Foundation aims to address gaps and work collaboratively within Poland, Eastern Europe, and globally.

The Foundation’s Approach:

  • Research: Partnering with organisations to identify and analyse threats, focusing on AI misuse and harmful online content.
  • Education and Awareness: Developing training materials, e-learning tools, and working with influencers to spread protective information.
  • Intervention & Advocacy: Implementing pilot programs, supporting the creation of a helpline for people concerned about their behaviours, and backing policies that protect children – emphasising the need for technology platforms to take action to proactively remove harmful materials.

Education is Key

The Foundation will contribute to training programs for parents, children, law enforcement, and public authorities. The goal is to equip everyone with the knowledge to protect our children from online dangers and support a holistic, whole-system response for digital safety.
