Using Financial/OSINT Intelligence to detect Child Sexual Abuse Material on the Darkweb

We currently investigate High-Risk Human Trafficking data using numerous methods which include Entity Resolution and comparison with other Datasets in order to uncover various links to fraud, money laundering, financial crimes, and other nefarious crimes. Student volunteers from colleges and universities will be sourcing Datasets from various providers and also assisting with the investigations. The Anti-Human Trafficking Intelligence Initiative (ATII) has also developed a Financial Intelligence Platform to assist with ongoing investigations and preventing the need for investigators to have to go on the Darkweb and be exposed to material and threats that could put them at risk. Students will utilize this system for investigations.

In this project, we are seeking to enhance the infrastructure, comprehensive datasets, and data analytics approaches to uncover transnational networks of sex trafficking on the Darkweb, and disrupt the operations, economics, and anonymity of the ill

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Equity strategies

Last updated: 05/24/2022

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
