The TRUST & SAFETY FORUM in a nutshell

The Trust & Safety Forum (T&SF) offers a cohesive space open to all stakeholders, from platforms to regulators, inclusive of trusted flaggers and solutions providers, 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, but also about inappropriate and biased content (“fake news”), cyber threats (phishing and other types of abuse) and fraud (payment fraud, ID theft etc.). Most of these dimensions have been dealt with within FIC, the International Cybersecurity Conference, in the last fifteen years. The T&SF is a new and necessary component in its own right, and a contributor to the security community.

Trust & Safety is a global problem which requires global initiatives, but the solutions are equally and essentially rooted in local ecosystems. This is why the T&SF is associated with FIC, a conference which attracts national cybersecurity ecosystems, because Trust & Safety is about synergies across disciplines.

    OBJECTIVES

    The Trust & Safety Forum aims to :

  • Bring together the diversity of stakeholders (from platforms to regulators, including trusted flaggers, law enforcement, solution providers and NGOs) that make our digital environment safer
  • Strengthen the efficiency of operational cooperation between these stakeholders, so innovation in policies and technology get noticed and implemented
  • Establish Trust & Safety as a discipline in its own right, as it redefines itself in next 10 years based on a new set of regulations in the EU, UK, USA, Australia…

TRUST & SAFETY FORUM

Why now?

The inaugural edition of the T&SF takes place at a unique moment, unprecedented in the last two decades, with a wave of new regulations under preparation, from the upcoming Digital Services Act in the EU to the review of the Earn.it Act in the US and the German Interstate Treaty on Youth Media protection, the German Youth Protection Act (2021), recent French laws on manipulation of information (2018) and against hate (2020), the Online Safety Bill in the UK or the Online Safety Act 2021 in Australia.

Beyond the multiplicity of initiatives, from the Christchurch Call Advisory Network, INHOPE and INSAFE, to the WeProtect Global Alliance there is a common pattern and thinking : no one can solve the problem on its own. No one has all the answers. So, first thing first, we all need to get the big picture. For the Trust & Safety community itself, but also for those - the many - who are unfamiliar with the richness and the opportunities provided by this new discipline.
