The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) has published a report following its investigation into online-facilitated child sexual abuse. The report looks at the response of law enforcement, the internet industry and government to online-facilitated child sexual abuse by considering the response to three types of offending including: indecent images of children offences; the grooming of a child; and live streaming of child sexual abuse. Recommendations to government include: publish the interim code of practice proposed by the Online Harms White Paper;  introduce legislation requiring providers of online services and social media platforms to implement more stringent age verification techniques; and require the online industry to pre-screen material before it is uploaded to the internet to prevent access to known indecent images of children.
