Broadening the GIFCT Hash-Sharing Database Taxonomy: An Assessment and Recommended Next Steps

As we seek to broaden and diversify our membership, and as the nature of terrorist and violent extremist activity online evolves, GIFCT must focus on developing rights-based technical solutions that are thoughtful, practical, and scalable. In our view, hash-sharing is an innovative and important first step in GIFCT’s efforts to share information among member companies and thereby promote more effective content moderation. But hashsharing is only one piece of the puzzle. When it comes to technical solutions and industry collaboration to address terrorist and violent extremist exploitation of the internet, much more remains to be done. GIFCT looks forward to working with our diverse stakeholder community to advance this collaborative effort in service of a safer and more open internet
and world.
