You will learn:

  • Why you need to look more closely at the businesses surrounding human trafficking. Polaris’s groundbreaking typology report breaks down the broad categories of labor trafficking and sex trafficking into 25 distinct business models, each with their own specific way of operating.

  • What red flags frequently appear in investigations and what companies should look for in the future.

  • How contextual monitoring leverages open-source intelligence and network graphs to link one bad indicator to a networked criminal organization driving sex or labor trafficking.


Human trafficking is the business of stealing freedom for profit. In some cases, traffickers trick, defraud or physically force victims into selling sex. In others, victims are lied to, assaulted, threatened or manipulated into working under inhumane, illegal or otherwise unacceptable conditions. It is a multi-billion dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to 24.9 million people around the world.
