NEW YORK, NY – March 7, 2023. Cobwebs Technologies, a global leader in Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT), is partnering with the International Association of Human Trafficking Investigators (IAHTI) to enhance human trafficking investigations. IAHTI is a not-for-profit organization and international leader in human trafficking education.
IAHTI’s mission is to arm law enforcement officers, prosecutors and intelligence analysts around the world with the training, technical support and resources they need to identify and rescue victims and prosecute their traffickers. Since 2009, IAHTI has provided victim-centered training for thousands of investigators in more than 64 countries and two U.S. Territories, with those numbers growing every year.
Cobwebs is supporting the IAHTI mission by offering its assistance with various human trafficking cases.
“This partnership comes at a critical time, as human trafficking continues to be a major global issue,” said Udi Levy, CEO and Co-founder of Cobwebs Technologies. “Traffickers are increasingly targeting victims through the world wide web and dating sites. By integrating our investigative platform, IAHTI will gain access to valuable intelligence that will aid in identifying hidden connections, potential predators and concrete threats. Together, we aim to detect possible crimes before they happen.”
Cobwebs’ web intelligence platform allows analysts to connect criminal channels from online sources to the dark web, providing a complete picture of complex illicit ecosystems often used for human trafficking purposes. Authorities can scour all levels of the internet and the various online platforms and are able to obtain precise and unrivaled web intelligence in the open and dark web in a fraction of the time it used to take.
“IAHTI is proud to partner with Cobwebs Technologies. Every year IAHTI trains thousands of Investigators, analysts and prosecutors. We strive to provide these practitioners with the best investigative techniques and technology. Cobwebs is a gamechanger for human trafficking, crimes against persons and organized crime investigations. This technology can help agencies potentially identify and locate missing and exploited persons,” said Jeremy Lewis, President and founding member of the IAHTI.
