The internet has revolutionalised how all of us communicate. Unfortunately, that includes terrorists. Sites that promote radicalisation and terrorist activity, or give information on terrorist methods, have become an integral part of global terrorist activity.

In our recent blogs and newsletters, we’ve talked about the need for being vigilant in our day-to-day physical environment. But with the terrorist threat level to the UK currently still severe, we also need to report suspicious materials that we see online.

This could include:

  • articles, images, speeches or videos promoting terrorism
  • content that encourages committing terrorist acts
  • websites that appear to have been authored by terrorist organisations
  • videos depicting terrorist attacks

The government has made it straightforward to report any material you think is suspicious. Just go to the home office website and fill in the simple form.

Report illegal terrorist information, pictures or videos you’ve found on the internet. Any information will be treated anonymously.

Once again, the key message is not to assume someone else will be reporting it.

We will be back with another security update soon.
