Can Technology Put an End to Human Trafficking, Sextortion, Retail Crime, and Cybercrime?
Noel Thomas, CEO of Zero Trafficking discussed the tools and technology needed to defeat human trafficking, sextortion, retail crime, and cybercrime at the ISCPO 2023 Conference.
Zero Trafficking is a campaign that seeks to end human trafficking by focusing on prevention, protection, prosecution, and partnerships. The campaign encourages individuals, organizations, and governments to take action to address the root causes of trafficking and to protect vulnerable populations. It also advocates for the prosecution of traffickers and the provision of support and services to survivors of trafficking.
Dark Watch, on the other hand, is a project that uses technology to combat human trafficking. The project involves the use of advanced data analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to identify patterns of trafficking and to track the movement of traffickers and victims. Dark Watch also provides law enforcement with the tools they need to investigate and prosecute trafficking cases.
Together, Zero Trafficking and Dark Watch are working to end human trafficking and bring traffickers to justice. By raising awareness, providing support to survivors, and using technology to identify and track traffickers, these initiatives are making a difference in the fight against one of the most heinous crimes in the world.
As of 2023, there are an estimated 27.6 million victims of human trafficking worldwide. In the criminal world, human trafficking is a highly lucrative business. Having the capacity to sell one human 20 times per day quickly adds up to a 150 billion-dollar industry.
