On 1 September, the Egmont Group reported that the Egmont Group is pleased to report that the Information Exchange Working Group (IEWG) “Combating child sexual abuse and exploitation through financial intelligence: Project report” and the corresponding public bulletin are now available.  The project sought to develop and consolidate the strategic intelligence picture associated with payments relating to the online streaming of CSAE. The data from Egmont Group member FIU and other sources, including private sector entities, provided the project team with an understanding of financial transactions suspected to be linked to online CSAE.  One of its main conclusions is that the use of some forms of non-financial/cyber-related data, not normally held by FIU, appears to result in high quality intelligence and indicates a potential value not achieved via other forms of data exchange. It also shows benefit in combining financial information with other forms of information in this way and undertaking data exchange between non-FIU entities.
