About this Event
As the entire world becomes connected through technology, young victims are more accessible to pimps, predators, pedophiles, gangs, cartels and organized crime. We will do an in-depth study of advancing technologies such as Artificial Intelligence. Crypto Currency, Encryption, Mass Audience Live Streaming, Bullet Proof Hosting and the Dark Net and their impact on child and adult sex crimes. We will look at the psychological impact of social media relationships and the role they play in sexual exploitation. These advanced technologies will change methodologies and protocols for crime and crime solving. Finally, we will examine how to prepare for the future as technology makes victims more accessible, harder to identify, and easier to exploit, and more prolific.
