Thorn runs the country’s most extensive online deterrence program, communicating directly with people searching for CSAM, disrupting their sense of anonymity and encouraging them to seek help. By suggesting help resources, we aim to change behavior and increase accountability. We are constantly testing messaging, identifying the best tactics to reach and persuade specific sub-groups, and capturing aggregate data to inform future research.
