The Virtual Global Taskforce (VGT) seeks to build an effective, international partnership of law enforcement agencies, non-government organisations and industry to help protect children from online child abuse.

The objectives of the VGT are to:
- make the internet a safer place
- identify, locate and help children at risk
- hold perpetrators appropriately to account.

The fifth biennial VGT Conference will be held from 11–13 December 2012 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, aimed at combating online child sexual abuse. The conference, titled International Collaboration: An Enabler for Prevention, will examine the motivating factors behind paedophile activity and attributes associated to their victims.

By focussing on child sexual abuse victims and offenders and maximising global partnerships, the conference will provide a unique opportunity to challenge ideas. Delegates will be encouraged to explore new methods to prevent online child sexual exploitation and, through the VGT strategic partnerships with non-government organisations, industry and private sectors, influence change.
