MET COMMISSIONER CALLS FOR ‘GLOBAL COALITION’ TO TACKLE CT THREAT POSED BY ONLINE PLATFORMS

The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police has urged tech companies to take a more active role in protecting people against terrorism and other forms of online harm.

Delivering the keynote speech to the International Institute of Counter Terrorism’s World Summit this morning, Monday 13 September, Cressida Dick told an audience of international CT experts that should tech companies ‘ignore their responsibility for public protection’, governments around the world must be prepared to enact new rules and regulations designed to strengthen their ability to protect their citizens from harm.

The speech also marked the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, and analysed how counter terrorism operations in the UK have had to evolve to meet the rapidly-changing threat during that time.
