Congratulations to the Winners of ATII’s Darkwebathon: Rally for Actionable Intelligence!

Darkwebathon: Rally For Actionable Intelligence

On May 21st 2022, ATII hosted a 6-hour open-source-based challenge inviting highly motivated personnel to work towards a common goal of following the money to fight slavery. The Darkwebathon brought together talented professionals able to create actionable intelligence with innovative technology. ATII lent their unique darkweb platform, Hades, to aid Darkwebathon participants with the goal of identifying and profiling potential traffickers. Thousands of email, hash and crypto leads were generated by a variety of automated methods to enable participants to further collect actionable intelligence.

Prizes valued at over USD100,000 combined were donated by event sponsors OSINT CombineADF Solutions, MaltegoTCAEHunchly, TWELVE Program and ManchesterCF. Two Darkwebathon winners each received a licence for the Financial Intelligence Specialist designation program donated by ManchesterCF.

We would like to congratulate all the winners in Darkwebathon Sprint 2022!

FIU CONNECT (Human Trafficking) is one of the courses included in the Financial Intelligence Specialist designation program. The training program advises participants on suspicious financial patterns that may indicate potential human trafficking through detailed case studies, examples and red flags.

By analysing transactional activity, patterns related to possible human trafficking and domestic sex slavery can be detected. Under these circumstances, financial institutions have a moral obligation to transmit accurate and timely financial intelligence to their national financial intelligence unit.
