“I am pleased to announce Tim Henning’s promotion to Vice President – Technology and Forensic Research.” stated ASACP CEO Joan Irvine.

Tim is the driving force behind anything technical at ASACP. He keeps himself educated on cutting edge technology. Tim is like having our own CSI and Research teams. He analyses the need and the available technology to determine if proposed projects will help protect children and fits within ASACP’s mission. If outside resources are needed, he finds volunteers to help accomplish his project. Since he is so well known and respected by the technology side of the industry, people are more than willing to help him plus they know it will be a learning experience for them, too. Tim is truly the Point Person and the heart of ASACP. ASACP is very lucky to have Tim as part of its team and to spearhead its online child protection technology.”
