Information regarding Industry CSAM Detection

We're waiting for Eliza Sorensen to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Children’s eSafety Commissioner,
Under the provisions outlined in the Freedom of Information Act of 1982, I would like to request the following from August 13 2021 until the date the eSafety Commissioner responds to this FOI Request.

Any emails and correspondence from the E-Safety commissioner or final documents that contain the following phrases:
"Apple CSAM", "CSAM detection", "Child abuse scanner", "On-device matching", "On-device matching process", "NCMEC", "Thorn", "Regulation, here we come!"

This request stems from comments that the eSafety Commissioner made on September 4th 2021;
"@Apple totally caved on doing the right thing. A chance at real industry leadership is now failed leadership. Having spent more than 22 years inside the tech industry, I observed that revenue, reputation & regulation tends to dictate these decisions. Regulation, here we come!"

Eliza Sorensen.

Hello,

Apologies, I should have been clearer; 'Until the date the eSafety Commissioner responds to this
FOI Request.' was intended to imply the day eSafety or a representative initially responded to this email.

Given that, I would like to adjust my request:
From the 13th of August 2021 to 24th of September 2021 for any emails and correspondence from the eSafety commissioner or final documents that contain the following phrases:

"Apple CSAM", "CSAM detection", "Child abuse scanner", "On-device matching", "On-device
matching process", "NCMEC", "Thorn", "Regulation, here we come!"

Regards,
Eliza Sorensen.

Hello FOI Coordinator,

That's odd; would you be able to provide more information on the issue?

I have followed up separately in an email sent 14/12/2021 at 13:16 to the esafety enquiries email address.

Could you please respond to this email confirming that you have received the document?

Regards,
Eliza Sorensen.

FOI, eSafety Commissioner

Dear Eliza,

Thank you for your email.

When we click on this link, https://drive.protonmail.com/urls/89Y06S..., we receive a message saying 'this site can't be reached'.

We have also followed up with our Enquiries team and they are yet to receive any further correspondence from you.

Kind regards,

Hello FOI Coordinator,

Sounds like your IT department is blocking that Proton link and I suspect my personal email has been caught by the spam filter.

I've sent another email containing the document requesting a formal review from a separate email address to the enquiries team at 07:26AM.

Please note that I do not consent to that email address being used for correspondence, it's solely being used to try and remedy this current situation.

Could you please respond to this email confirming that you have received the document?

Regards,
Eliza Sorensen

FOI, eSafety Commissioner

Dear Eliza,

Thank you for your email.

We confirm we have received your document.

We will communicate with you through this email address only, [FOI #7871 email], for this request.

Kind regards,

FOI Coordinator

The email of December 21, 2021 from the Commissioner acknowledging a receipt actually relates to a different FOI request, relating to social media posting times, and does not belong in this communication chain.
