Human trafficking produces enormous sums of illicit profits for criminal groups. Hiding the origins of money earned from prostitution and slavery, storing the money safely and making it readily accessible are key goals for those who are engaged in the trafficking of human beings. However, it is the financial activity of these criminals that can actually lead to their arrest.
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.
The FIU CONNECT (Human Trafficking) training program was designed from a North American perspective. This course advises participants on suspicious financial patterns that may indicate potential human trafficking through detailed case studies, examples and red flags.
The FIU CONNECT (Human Trafficking) training program can be implemented with the following components:
- Digital textbook
- Computer-based training (customisable and SCORM-compliant)
- Multiple languages
