NetClean to help Home Office fight child abuse

NetClean’s Analyze Collaboration Server will act as a central hub where files are stored and easily extracted for new investigations.

NetClean, a provider of intelligence solutions designed to create a safer society, has collaborated with its partners, Hubstream and L-3 ASA, to implement the first phase of the UK’s national Child Abuse Image Database (CAID).

The CAID plays a key part in delivering on the UK government’s promise to create a central repository for consolidating data in cases of child sexual abuse material.
The new service will enable crime units to share data, information and leads as part of the fight to protect children from exploitation. The contract was awarded to L-3 ASA, who is delivering the solution together with NetClean and Hubstream.The selection was made through the UK Government’s G-Cloud framework and the service will be rolled out over a two-year timeframe to 46 police forces and law enforcement agencies across the UK.
NetClean’s Analyze Collaboration Server will act as a central hub where files are stored and easily extracted for new investigations. The CAID service enables law enforcement agencies to search content on seized devices for child abuse images and to quickly differentiate between new and existing material, allowing them to focus resources accordingly. As part of CAID, NetClean will also provide a client server solution for streamlining the collection, analysis, correlation and deconfliction of child sexual abuse material.
Johann Hofmann, Product Manager NetClean Analyze, said: “It’s hugely exciting to be working on such an important project. The joined-up investigative approach that the CAID enables will have a significant impact on how UK law enforcement tackles sexual crimes against children and puts the UK at the forefront of how to investigate this crime. The CAID is a promising step in the intelligent analysis of digital media and big data, as the more data the system holds, the better insight it provides.”
