How Live Stream Threat Defense averted a potential school tragedy

February 8, 2024

Live Streaming is an integral part of the online experience on major social media platforms. It is also subject to new and dangerous forms of potential misuse, allowing violent extremist groups, conspiracy theorists, predators, and malicious actors to amplify violent activity, spread false and inflammatory narratives, grow their followings, and engage with vulnerable users.

The security and reputational threats arising from the misuse of ‘livestreaming’ features are growing in scope and severity. A recent incident that saw a partner platform employ our Livestream Threat Defense solution to take a swift and proactive response to foil a school shooting in the US highlights the efficacy of our bespoke solution.
