What Data Experts are Saying

“The information provided by ATII has directly led to the identification of several suspected trafficking networks. These networks have various business models that range from forced labor, prostitution, to a network of strip clubs we suspect are functioning as brothels, to online sexual exploitation with direct client matches.

Because of these leads, we were able to provide information that is supporting multiple law enforcement investigations which has never been done like this before. Aaron and his team have been awesome in helping our newly created team in the FIU succeed in our open-source intelligence investigations.

Thank you for all you do and we couldn’t do it without you guys! “

– Freddy Massimi III, Senior Financial Crimes Investigator



“DigitalMint is excited to partner with the Anti-Human Trafficking Intelligence Initiative in its fight to combat human trafficking. DigitalMint for years has been trying to implement a monitoring scenario to detect HT/CSAM related transactions specifically but has been unable to do so due to the low dollar transactions involved with those typologies and the transactions often not involving high-risk wallets. However, by utilizing the data available through the platform, DigitalMint is able to effectively monitor for Human Trafficking and CSAM while not being inundated with false-positive transaction monitoring alerts. I'd recommend ATII's Darkweb Intelligence platform to anyone in the BTM space who is looking for an effective enhancement to their AML program.”

“We are incredibly proud to partner with and support the Anti-Human Trafficking Intelligence Initiative through their efforts in building tools and techniques for a cause which should be paramount to any organization in the cyber and crypto sphere. Their ability to timely extricate sensitive data from darknet markets such as IP addresses, usernames, e-mail addresses, and many other identifiers are oftentimes the crucial pieces of the puzzle critical to advancing investigations. There aren't many players in this space who have dedicated themselves to this very important mission and we are incredibly grateful of their team who have made anti-human trafficking their life's focus.”

"The Attribution and Investigations teams at CipherTrace appreciate ATII's Darkweb Intelligence platform and the vast array of indexed data from onion sites. The scraped onion site data provides the title of the sites as well as categories and keyword analysis. Investigations uses this data to identify crypto addresses that may be re-used ie. multiple sites/scams using one BTC address. This provides CipherTrace with critical insights on relationships between entities and scam types, and any potential connections to CSAM/sexploitation."

"ATII continues to lead the path in investigative innovations, providing a utility for investigators with law enforcement and companies such as CipherBlade to cross-reference multi-source data. The integration with leading analysis tools such as Chainalysis foster efficient hand-off of data across specialties, which streamlines collaboration across specialties. Before ATII's Darkweb Intelligence platform, the process of scraping the dark web for data such as cryptocurrency addresses was a process with several more steps. Time quickly adds up in investigations, and the trove of data this platform provides is an unparalleled bolstering to not only investigators but compliance programs with partner organizations that take the issues of human trafficking and child exploitation to heart. ATII enables us to work together in ways that simply were not possible before."

Thanks to the help of ATII, we are able to put that philosophy into practice. We successfully cross-referenced their suspicious activity alerts with our customer database to identify possible human traffickers. It is a practical way of helping our customers and community to be safer."
