RIM has joined forces with rival Microsoft in fight against child exploitation. According to the Australian Federal Police RIM has joined the Virtual Global Taskforce (VGT) as a private sector partner. The VGT plans on using RIM's global developer community to make apps for protecting children from harmful content.
Fred Nesbitt RIM's legal director for public safety said that " Device security is vitally important to protect children and other vulnerable groups from cyber threats that can be used to exploit children online,” This is true as its easier to help keep that bad stuff from children. It is really nice to see RIM helping out in such a great cause. Protecting kids is always at the top of the list of good things.
