Event description

Description

The Tech Against Terrorism Project is holding a startup workshop in Dublin in collaboration with Dublin City University and VOX-Pol. The aim of the event is to reach out to the tech startup community in Ireland and discuss responses to the terrorist use of online platforms and services.

Tech Against Terrorism is a global campaign designed to help fight the terrorist exploitation of technology, in support of the knowledge-sharing component of the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism”. Together with leading tech companies, our focus is on building practical tools to help startups develop responses to the exploitation of their services, whilst reinforcing the importance of human rights and protecting fundamental freedoms. To this end, we are engaging with startups around the world to identify their concerns and the best ways in which we might be able to provide assistance. Our partners include major tech companies such as Facebook, Google, Twitter and Microsoft, and startups including SoundCloud, TransferWise, JustPaste.it and Yellow.

The Dublin workshop is designed to educate startups on the nature of the threat and the ways in which their platforms might be susceptible to exploitation, to learn what particular vulnerabilities firms' might have identified, and to ascertain the best means for the Tech Against Terrorism team to provide support.

Our aim is to get as many tech startups from Dublin and Ireland at large attending. In particular we're interested in startups that provide social media, communications, data storage, fintech or block chain services - as these are the areas that can provide propaganda and operational applicability for terrorist groups. This is a free event that will also afford networking opportunities.

Please visit our website on www.techagainstterrorism.org for more information or get in touch with the Tech Against Terrorism team at contact@techagainstterrorism.org with any questions you may have. We hope to see you in September!

Tech Against Terrorism is being implemented by the ICT4Peace Foundation for the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Executive Directorate (UN CTED), pursuant to UN Security Council resolution 2354 (2017) and the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee.
