Writing in the Sun on Sunday, Ms Rudd said online technology had made “vile child sexual abuse content vastly easier to find”.
“It is with absolute urgency that I call on all internet companies to go further and go faster in tackling online child sexual abuse,” she said.
“We need you all to bring your resources and your technical expertise to help us turn the tide on this horrendous scourge. It is your moral duty.”
Ms Rudd’s comments come as new government figures show there was a 700% increase in the number of indecent images identified on technology company servers and flagged to law enforcement agencies between 2013 and 2017.
Each month there are more than 400 arrests for indecent images of children offences in the UK and some 500 children are being protected from online sexual exploitation, the government said.
Ms Rudd will also raise concerns about the use of messaging websites and apps, as well as video and image apps and websites, during her trip.
