Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children Online- A Strategic Assessment (by European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) – Europol)

The European Financial Coalition against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children Online (“EFC”) brings together key actors from law enforcement, the private sector and civil society in Europe with the common goal of fighting against commercial sexual exploitation of children online. Members of the EFC join forces to take action on the payment and ICT systems used to run these illegal operations. Within the framework of a 36-month project funded by the European Commission, the EFC focuses on five working groups (“Work Packages” or “WP”). Each Work Package is responsible for one of the five strategic objectives of the EFC. The WPs are composed by both public and private partners and meet regularly in order to implement their respective deliverables in accordance with the overall timetable of the three year project. Relevant participants are identified over time, depending on the needs of a Work Package. The five working groups will contribute to the establishment of a permanent platform and resource centre for law enforcement authorities, payment system providers and ISPs engaged in counteracting the online distribution of child abuse material.
