The available statistics on human trafficking globally shows an astonishing and alarming impact with the International Labor Organization estimating that there are 40.3 million victims of human trafficking globally and that forced labor and human trafficking is a $150 billion industry worldwide.

Our mission centers around following the money to fight slavery by collecting fact-based data to address the highly challenging and dynamic nature of cybercrimes in human trafficking, modern slavery, and child sex abuse material to identify and profile potential traffickers. Most of our work is executed with Hades, our unique licensed platform, as a way to detect child exploitation, CSAM, drugs, weapons, fraud, mixers/washers, money laundering or other illicit activity – in addition to human trafficking.

Because traditional boundaries of corporate good are evolving to include a more strategic and holistic view of corporate activities, ATII aims to uphold our ESG priorities and to achieve our UN Sustainable Development Goals (5, 8, and 16) by combating human trafficking across the globe.

As public and private organizations continue to collaborate in the creation of a uniform front to fight human trafficking, we will see a true impact in educating many industries, to include not only risk & compliance staff but also frontline workers like tellers, relationship managers, and branch leaders.
