Register here.


Tech Against Terrorism is pleased to announce the launch of the updated Knowledge Sharing Platform.

Our research at Tech Against Terrorism shows that small platforms are in urgent need of support in understanding the threat to their services as well as building pragmatic ways to moderate content effectively. The Knowledge Sharing Platform (KSP), which is now being relaunched after having been updated, will provide technology companies the tools and resources they need to tackle and future-proof their services against terrorist and violent extremist exploitation.

Tech Against Terrorism developed the KSP to provide tech companies with a collection of interactive tools and resources to better understand the terrorist use of the internet and how to counter this threat whilst respecting human rights and fundamental freedoms. The KSP is designed to support operational and policy-oriented needs of platforms, with a focus on developing and implementing an effective counterterrorism response with transparency and accountability as central guiding principles.

In this launch event, we will hear from Tech Against Terrorism about the development of the Knowledge Sharing Platform. This event will feature a demo of the Knowledge Sharing Platform.

This session will finish with a Q&A session that is open to all attendees.

If you would like to sign up to this free event, please register with your institutionally affiliated email address – note that registration does not guarantee admission, and access to this webinar will be limited.

  About the Knowledge Sharing Platform

Updated in 2021, and originally launched at the United Nations in November 2017, the KSP is a free platform that is exclusive to tech companies. The platform will be continuously updated and expanded to ensure that the resources are up to date and cover as much ground as possible.

The KSP contains expert advice on content standards, online regulation and transparency reporting. The KSP’s resources bank also includes:

  • A Compendium of Symbols associated with designated terrorist groups and violent extremist groups, including logos as well as other visual identifiers such as visual imagery, flags, and tattoos.
  • A Terminology Dataset containing general key terms and phrases used by terrorists and violent extremists, divided by ideology.
  • An Online Regulation Legislation Table listing all relevant legislation covered in the Tech Against Terrorism’s Online Regulation Series, organised by country and date.
  • A Comprehensive List of Designated and Proscribed Groups including links to designation lists by democratic nation states and supranational institutions.
