The TRUST & SAFETY FORUM in a nutshell

Since the Spring of 2022, the Trust & Safety Forum (T&SF) offers a cohesive and international space open to all stakeholders, from platforms to regulators, inclusive of trusted flaggers, solutions providers, and governments committed to a trusted and safer digital environment today and for the future.

The T&SF offers a place and time to connect with different stakeholders to discuss and advance collaborative initiatives, develop innovative processes and solutions ensuring that digital environment remains a place to share knowledge, to build communities, to develop opportunities and empower people.

Trust & Safety thrives to become a standard discipline within the broad family of security, but it should not be siloed. Trust & Safety is about identifying and treating harmful and illegal content (e.g. user generated content such as child sexual exploitation material, hate & discrimination, terrorism), but also about inappropriate and biased content (misinformation). Trust & Safety is also about proactively building guardrails to ensure safer online experiences, through a safety by design approaches.

Trust & Safety is a global challenge which requires global initiatives, but the solutions are equally and essentially rooted in local solutions.  T&SF is co-founded by Jean-Christophe Le Toquin, Caroline Humer and Guillaume Tissier, who together bring more than 6 decades of experience in connecting people and organizations to make our digital world safer and more resilient.

Why now?

The third edition of the T&SF focuses on the impact the most recent public policies have had on the T&S community and diverse responses being implemented. The EU Digital Services Act (2022) as well as the Ai Regulation (2023) is not only affecting social media platforms but also extends their reach to user-generated content websites and user experiences. 

The UK Online Safety Bill is also one of the most far reaching regulation in preparation, and the  emerging Global Online Safety Regulators Network initiated by the Australian eSafety Commissioner may put Safety by Design at the heart of future public policies. Consequently, the T&SF is bringing together all public and private stakeholders from the digital ecosystem to share collective knowledge, help content moderators, policy and product teams, trusted flaggers and regulators identify areas requiring stronger focus, and explore viable solutions for compliance with these regulations.

The T&SF will provide the space for discussion for any sector implementing the various components of the DSA, gain deeper insights into the Ai Regulation and also familiarize themselves with different technology solutions available to address illegal and harmful content online. By coming together as a community, we can fortify our collective strength and enhance our ability to identify malicious actors while safeguarding all users on the internet.
