Tech that builds safer, stronger online communities
What is Safety Tech?
“Cybersecurity focuses on protecting data, information, networks and systems. Cyber safety, or safety tech, focuses on protecting what it is to be human online. It focuses on protecting people online.” – Professor Mary Aiken, Cyberpsychologist
Safety Tech is technology that has been designed to facilitate safer online experiences, and to protect users from harmful content, contact or conduct.

The Safety Tech Innovation Network aims to grow a global community of Safety Tech professionals, providing opportunities for networking, collaboration, and a genuine dialogue for overcoming challenges unique to the sector and influencing policy making.
Safety Tech Challenge Fund
The UK Government is awarding five organisations up to £85,000 each to prototype and evaluate innovative ways in which sexually explicit images or videos of children can be detected and addressed within end-to-end encrypted environments, while ensuring user privacy is respected.
In the kickoff event of the Safety Tech Innovation Network “101” series, attendees heard from experts from Tech Against Terrorism on how websites and platforms can take simple steps to protect themselves from terrorist content.
The Government has today (17 November) announced the five projects that have been selected as the winners of the 2021 Safety Tech Challenge Fund. The selected projects will improve the response to child sexual exploitation and abuse online combining innovative approaches developed by safety tech companies, academics and third sector organisations.
