Having the right tools in place to support moderators can help businesses comply with the law, protect users and build engaged, supportive online communities.

    Consequence Scanning is a new agile practice that helps organisations consider the potential consequences of their product or service on people, communities and the planet. The technique helps product teams understand how best to mitigate or address potential harms before they happen, and ensure that the products or services they’re creating are aligned with their organisation’s values and culture. In this unmissable workshop learn about: the Consequence Scanning technique, and how it could be applied to your own work; take part in a practical exercise to test the technique; discuss the applicability of the technique to the development of online safety technologies.

CogX is proud to be hosting the world’s first safety tech conference, curated by Department of Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS) and, Department for International Trade (DIT).
