Internet Watch Foundation Accountability
IWF operations are accountable to the Board of Trustees, industry Members and our stakeholders. IWF governance arrangements, Annual Reports and details of our operational activity are available on our website. Our staff are supported by full welfare structures and are subject to enhanced Criminal Records Bureau checks.
Our Hotline systems, assessment, security and processes are inspected by independent auditors such as forensic, academic and law enforcement professionals; the most recent being in March 2011. The inspection found IWF to be compliant with best practice standards. Our information systems and security are also independently inspected and we are ISO 27001 compliant.
