The European Commission’s TITANIUM Project Lead to join Government Blockchain Week
As our relationship to the web has evolved, criminals have evolved along with it. Utilizing the pseudo-anonymity of the dark web, peer-to-peer platforms, digital currencies, and DLT technologies, bad actors have been able to sell everything from weapons, child pornography, and illegal narcotics with a large degree of success. Recognizing the need for sophisticated forensic tools in combatting organized internet crime, the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program funded a $5 million, 3-year research project called TITANIUM.
TITANIUM (an acronym for ‘Tools for the Investigation of Transactions in Underground Markets’) was a consortium of 15 partners comprising organizations from 7 European Countries. Amongst these partners were INTERPOL and the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH, and their department, the Center for Digital Safety & Security. Their objective was to research, develop and validate a system of novel data that could support cyber investigations by ‘following the money’ and implementing chains of evidence that Courts would find acceptable for use in prosecutions.
We are pleased to announce that the former TITANIUM Project lead, Dr. Ross King, will be speaking at the Legal, Law Enforcement and Cybersecurity Forum
Dr. King is a Head of Competence Unit: Data Science & Artificial Intelligence at the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH. He will be sharing his invaluable insight into the multi-stakeholder research project whose objective is to shape how Global Law Enforcement undertakes cyber investigations.
The TITANIUM project concluded in April of this year, allowing attendees at Government Blockchain Week to benefit from Dr. King’s post-project synopsis.
Additional speakers will be:
Robert Whitaker from the Blockchain Intelligence Group, (BIG), The Blockchain Intelligence Group is a Canadian based global technology company whose mission is to bring Cryptocurrency mainstream, and investigative solutions to government and law enforcement to fight financial crime related to cryptocurrency.
and Mr. Majid Malaika, a Cybersecurity and Digital Technology Expert from the Inter Monetary Fund, (IMF).
