It is estimated that over 1.8 billion images are uploaded and shared over the Internet daily, which makes it difficult to track down online child pornography.

However, the US tech giant Microsoft is fighting back and has developed a new tool agencies to fight cybercrime which is distributed free of charge to law enforcement.

At the 13th Crime Congress underway in Doha, Qatar, Jorge Miyares discussed cybercrime with Dale Waterman, leader of the Microsoft Digital Crime Unit for the Middle East and Africa.
