Preface to GTA by Sir Iain Lobban

“I came across the following description of Intelligence recently: “Intelligence is the ability to unravel knowledge, but it is also the knowledge itself.” I might go further and say that unless intelligence is actionable, it does not deserve that label. And this is one thing that a keen reader might take away from the Global Threat Assessment-“

This is a highly impressive compendium of information from multiple sources, harvesting a wide range of studies by reputable authorities, generating a comprehensive view of the threats and trends, of the potential scale and ingenious variety of financial crime around the world today.

Global Threat Assessment
by John Cusack

Despite the limitations presented in estimating criminal activity designed to be hidden, the results in the Global Threat Assessment present a bleak picture. 

Criminal markets are generating more illicit funds than at any other time in our history, with ever more harmful effects inflicted against every Country, against billions of people and against our increasingly fragile environment.

We are witnessing the transformation of organised crime into very big business, leveraging networks to connect criminal actors, adopting poly criminality, embracing new cyber tools and opportunities afforded by the transformation to digital.

How big, which Countries, by what Methods and by which Gangs, is summarised in this Global Threat Assessment, using over 100 publicly available studies or reports from credible sources, together with personal observations and recommendations from the author.

Human Trafficking – Intelligence Briefing by FCN – Coming Soon - Premium

Human Trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. Many victims of human trafficking are forced to work in prostitution or the sex industry, but trafficking also occurs in forms of labour exploitation, such as domestic servitude, restaurant work, janitorial work, sweatshop factory work and migrant agricultural work and it also includes organ trafficking and forced marroages.

They are all part of a growing global phenomenon of human exploitation, directly involving approximately 40 million people, generating $150 billion in profit to traffickers, making it the third largest trafficking crime after goods and drugs, a top 10 criminal market (6th largest overall), and of most concern likely one of the fastest growing. 

This intelligence briefing (coming soon and expected to be published on 2nd December 2019 – on the UN’s International Day for the Abolition of Slavery) is provided to support a better understanding of the threat faced from Human Trafficking, and to enable A more effective response.
