LOS ANGELES — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection is continuing its expansion into the European Union.
As part of the initiative to bring its child protection technology to a worldwide audience, ASACP’s interim director, Tim Henning, a digital forensics expert, will travel to London to attend a series of upcoming events.
The trip includes the XBIZ.net London Gathering, Adult Industry Trade Association (AITA) and Family Online Safety Institute EU meetings and an ASACP EU Advisory Council meeting.
Henning said, “ASACP is committed to reaching a global audience. This involves more than translations of our sites to improve their accessibility to non-English-speaking users.”
He added, “For example, our European outreach allows us to network with other hotlines, enabling the association to both help and benefit from these other child protection advocacy groups.”
Henning's participation in the FOSI European Conference will include discussions around privacy, data retention, mobile usage, digital citizenship, research findings and public policy developments in the U.S., U.K. and Europe.
ASACP will also reach out to industry members in London at a special AITA event where Henning will meet with other participants to discuss the benefits of supporting ASACP.
The association said the informal XBIZ.net London Gathering, sponsored by Wister and Itelebill, offers ASACP an effective method of connecting with adult business owners from the U.K. and beyond.
Association reps will also be on hand at XBIZ EU, a major event slated for London in September.
Capping Henning’s London trip is an ASACP EU Advisory Council meeting, that will focus on helping shape the course of the association’s ongoing expansion within the European Union.
