The presentation will review advances in cross-platform solutions advanced through the GIFCT. GIFCT was founded in 2017 by technology platforms to give structure and support for countering terrorism and violent extremism online. This includes workstreams for (1) multi stakeholder knowledge-sharing, (2) developing action-oriented research, (3) building cross-platform tech solutions, and (4) managing shared incident response protocols. The presentation will review the state of play in adversarial shifts by violent extremist groups online and what this means for the evolution of counter measures in the online space.
