Trust & Safety Global Risks – July 2022

As global events develop and infiltrate the online space, Trust & Safety teams are often left reacting to damage, after it is done. The ability to proactively plan around potentially impactful events allows platforms to detect harms before they come, minimizing risk.

To alert platforms of these risks, each month our event monitoring report provides an overview of both known calendar events and high-risk developing events that may impact online discourse in the coming month.

This July, our report contains intelligence on developing narratives and signals including:

  • Social unrest over a major social issue and religious tensions in India
  • Escalating tensions between Russia and its neighboring countries
  • Ongoing hostility following the reversal of Roe v. Wade in the United States

Read on to understand the first signs of pre-viral activity to detect imminent risks.
