CSEC: A look at Advanced Technology and Global Child Pornography Rings


We'll look at advanced technologies such as encryption, crypto currency, mass audience live streaming, bulletproof hosting and the Dark Net.

About this Event

The convergence of advanced technologies such as encryption, crypto currency, file sharing, mass audience live streaming, bullet-proof hosting and the Dark Net have created an entire new industry in the underground economy that is exploiting the most vulnerable of all victims – children and teens.

This two-hour session will look at how pedophiles meet, how they form large scale rings that are inaccessible to the general public and how they build massive databases of videos and photos of exploited children. Most important we will examine the tools that law enforcement now use to infiltrate large scale rings and then trace the identity of millions of offenders right back to your neighborhoods. We will examine who the offenders are and some of factors that surround pedophilia.

Workshop led by Opal Singleton.
