Event description
TACTICAL TRAINING EXERCISE - ILLICIT MASSAGE BUSINESS

About this Event

The California Cybersecurity Institute (CCI) is passionate about delivering powerful and effective tools to fight cybercrime including the issue of human trafficking. Equipping California’s Peace Officers and personnel with the resources and experience to combat human trafficking and assist victims is our upmost mission.

To that end, at this year’s California Peace Officer Association’s ADVANCED Conference, the CCI is showcasing their Illicit Massage Business (IMB) immersive environment. Each scene is designed to reflect the realistic aspects of IMB’s, staged with furniture, materials, and anecdotal signs of human trafficking. The environment will feature both physical and digital evidence that is often found during search and seizures of massage parlors. Piecing the evidence together participants will utilize state of the art software to identify patterns with other massage parlors in the area as well as locate online advertisements for sexual services linked to sex trafficking.

This is made possible through our partnership with the Global Emancipation Network and their tool MINERVA. MINERVA uses legally compliant and admissible in court publicly available data from numerous sources, includes visualization of data maps of individuals involved in illegal activity, enabling faster capture of criminals and rescue of victims, and decreases re-traumatization of victims by allowing searches without having to conduct multiple interviews among several other features. This exercise will include training on how to use the tool as well access to free user accounts to use on the job.

Lastly, for those that cannot commit to the full exercise we will have a 10-minute Virtual Reality demonstration for a shortened, but still powerful experience. From start to finish, participants will test and hone their knowledge and skills in trafficking investigations and use it in the field where is matters most.
