HUMAN TRAFFICKING & SMUGGLING
Human trafficking is a borderless crime that involves trading people for profit. Trafficking is commonly targeted at vulnerable communities, especially those who are impacted by conflict, economic and political inequality.
Social media facilitates criminal entities to communicate, recruit and advertise services related to trafficking operations. However, this also leaves a digital footprint for investigators and analysts who can leverage online data to disrupt trafficking operations.
In this industry brief, we explore how intelligence teams can harness open-source intelligence to:
- Understand the correlation between human smuggling and human trafficking
- Uncover human trafficking networks, content and communications
- Reveal where agencies should focus their attention, through collation of information across disparate sources.
- Overcome challenges regarding access and analysis of complex trafficking networks
