User survey launched for HSPs on the TCO Regulation
In the context of mapping Hosting Service Providers (HSPs) needs and informing the community about the EU Terrorist Content Online (TCO) Regulation, a survey was launched across Europe so as to gather the experiences and needs of the HSPs in relation to the TCO Regulation.
The questionnaire was created following interviews which were conducted by the partners with small and very small HSPs per country. After the interviews were completed, the responses were collected and the questionnaire was finalised.
The questionnaire was distributed to 12.000+ HSPs across European countries aiming to:
1. Inform about the Regulation and their obligations as HSPSs
2. Collect data on their awareness of the existence of the TCO Regulation
3. Find out the ways they potentially use already to block terrorist content online
4. Expression of interest in participating in the FRISCO project activities
Based on the above results, a tool for the immediate removal of TCO will be created and a trainings and webinars will be organised to inform HSPs on its use.
