THE PRIVATE SECTOR COUNTERING HUMAN TRAFFICKING:
New technologies, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Tackling Human Trafficking
The sixth and last webinar of the New technologies, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Tackling Human Trafficking webinar series was held on Thursday, May 18 , 2017 10:00 am – 12:00 pm EDT/ 4:00 – 6:00 pm CEST
With the altering terrain of cyberspace, criminal activity has been greatly impacted. Law enforcement and other key stakeholders face new challenges with addressing this crime. However, technology provides significant avenues to discovering and identifying human trafficking.
From a law enforcement perspective, how has technology changed the scope of criminal activity? From the development of software to detect the online exploitation of children to the development of specific apps, how effective are these new media solutions in terms of finding cases? What is the next wave of technological advancements that could detect these crimes?
This webinar will discuss these questions and will assemble a panel of experts drawn from law enforcement, the private sector, academia, public policy and the NGO community:
- Joséphine Goube, CEO, Techfugees
- Yusuf Omar, Senior Social Reporter, CNN International
- Vanessa Theoharis, Associate Director of Integrated Content Strategy, Babson College (Moderator)
