MySpace is committed to making our community as safe as possible for all of our members. Safety and security are built into every new site feature and we have designed and built features specifically to enhance the security of our online community. This is an ongoing process that we are constantly reviewing and updating under the leadership of our Chief Security Officer, Hemanshu Nigam, who spent 17 years as a career prosecutor and child safety advocate. Nigam is a former Department of Justice Internet crimes prosecutor who held executive-level security positions at Microsoft and the MPAA and who leads a team that works full-time on safety and security-related initiatives across the company. In addition, MySpace has a robust team dedicated to policy enforcement and content review that work to identify potential problems and takes immediate action when safety and/or security issues occur.
We work hard to provide users with access to age appropriate content, to shield younger users from older members of the community, and to partner with law enforcement in these efforts. Some of the most significant steps we have taken in this area include:
Preventing Underage Users
Protecting Younger Users from Inappropriate Contact
Protecting Younger Users from Inappropriate Content
Reporting Inappropriate Content
Providing Tools for all Members
Partnering with Non-profit Organizations
Partnering with Law Enforcement
Dedicated MySpace Teams
Taking Ongoing Safety/Security Measures to Spot & Solve Safety Challenges
These measures represent just a sampling of the steps MySpace has taken to protect our community's safety and enforce our rules. We look forward to answering any questions you might have and sharing new security initiatives with you on an ongoing basis.
