- From Victimization to Restitution: Role of the CyberTipline and CVIP
This presentation will bring attention to the production of images and video files in child sexual abuse. From the abuse and its documentation, to distribution and investigation, and ultimately to rescue and restitution, child sexual exploitation images form part of an ecosystem that involves all aspects of law enforcement and technology. Learn about the path these files take from a victim-centered standpoint, and how your help and participation in the “chain” is pivotal to rescuing children featured in child sexual abuse images. Case studies will be used to highlight the concepts.
- Interpreting Child Sex Trafficking CyberTipline Reports and Resources for Law Enforcement
This presentation will demonstrate the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s (NCMEC) resources available to investigators working to identify and recover victims of child sex trafficking. Attendees will become familiar with the free analytical resources provided by the Child Sex Trafficking Team (CSTT) at NCMEC, who process hundreds of online advertisements a month, as assist NCMEC CST Case Managers by providing analytical support for missing cases assigned to them.
- Power of Big Data: Partnering with Tech to Advance our Mission
Hidden “behind” digital images and videos may be crucial information to assist in identifying victims of child sexual abuse. Many people are aware of the importance of serial numbers, date timestamps and GPS coordinates to linking child exploitation files together. Now working with data analytics and uncovering 56,000 known data fields, the analysis of EXIF metadata across cases can be much less daunting and much more efficient. Case examples, EXIF definitions and discussions, and demonstrations of the newly developed tools and in-house analytics performed on all files submitted to NCMEC will be shown.
- Investigating Online Advertisements
An in depth look at indicators that will assist in locating and identifying victims of sex trafficking. This session will look at the different websites commonly used by traffickers and their victims and will show the evidence found on social media sites and applications that can assist in sex trafficking investigations. Many of the examples given are from actual cases investigated by the instructor.
