Webinar | Using Maltego for Combating Crime: Insights from Maltego’s NGO Partners

According to the US Department of state “trafficking in persons,” “human trafficking,” and “modern slavery” are umbrella terms – often used interchangeably – to refer to a crime whereby traffickers exploit and profit at the expense of adults or children by compelling them to perform labour or engage in commercial sex.  When a person younger than 18 is used to perform a commercial sex act, it is a crime regardless of whether there is any force, fraud, or coercion involved.

This webinar aims to enrich the audience with an understanding of human trafficking and the complexities around these types of investigations. We will discuss some key terms, concepts and misinformation on the topic.

  • Technologies that benefit Human Trafficking investigations.
  • Measures to protect investigators.
  • Global investigations challenges.
  • Principles on how to safeguard against human trafficking and what red flags to look for if you think someone is being trafficked.
