Another weakness in the current reporting system is that the law does not say exactly what information should be reported to NCMEC.

According to testimony submitted by the Center to the Senate Commerce Committee, “because there are no guidelines for the contents of these reports, some [companies] do not send customer information that allows NCMEC to identify a law enforcement jurisdiction. So potentially valuable investigative leads are left to sit in the CyberTipline database with no action taken.” This is unacceptable, Mr. President.
