Microsoft International is a CPP Global Reference Group member and was a leader in creating the CPP Project. Following the creation of its Child Exploitation Tracking System (CETS) software, the then head of CETS at Microsoft recognized there was a need to strengthen the capacity of law enforcement agencies and other actors in less developed countries so CETS could be used effectively as a case management tool for investigations. Microsoft approached the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) to fund CPP, as well as the other original Steering Committee (now known as the Global Reference Group) organizations UNICEF, RCMP National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre, and IICRD to lead and launch CPP in 2008. Microsoft also offers the CETS software to Law Enforcement free of charge.
Microsoft is also actively working with CPP through Microsoft Brazil. In Sao Paulo, Microsoft Brazil and other CPP partners are collaborating on educational opportunities through Brazil's telecentres so children, adolescents and adults can use Information and Communication Technology (ICT) safely and responsibly.
