Crisp stops toxic, harmful and fake online content from damaging enterprises, social platforms and society. This content takes many forms, including fake news, terror propaganda, child-grooming, hate speech, medical disinformation, false rumors, threats, misinformation and many more online harms. Fueled by the increased popularity of closed social media groups and messaging apps, harmful content can now spread virally, at scale before it reaches mainstream media channels. Unfortunately, anyone has the power to create and share harmful content, especially bad actors who distribute millions of new types every day.
Crisp calls this the weaponization of social communications. It is our mission and our passion to deliver the best defense. Established in 2005 by online gaming and social media entrepreneur Adam Hildreth, Crisp began protecting children and teenagers using online games and social networks from abuse, sexual exploitation, cyberbullying and other online harms. This relentless focus on stopping social communication from being weaponized against those most vulnerable has been Crisp’s mission from day one. Today that passion extends to working with enterprises, social platforms and governments.
Trained on 15+ years of online harm detection, Crisp’s real-time knowledge graph discovers, tracks, rapidly alerts and removes harmful content that is created by bad actors. We analyze billions of bad actor signals from the open, deep, dark web and closed messaging apps, going where no one else goes. This technology is used by a global team of experts specializing in signals intelligence, linguistics, big data, AI, human intelligence, psychology, data protection, and law and regulation. It has become an early warning and threat intervention system for stopping harmful content 24/7/365. As a result, Crisp contributes to the safe, daily online experiences for over two billion users (covering an estimated 400 million children) across the globe.
Crisp continues to rapidly expand while proudly keeping its roots firmly in Leeds, England.
