Abstract

Both the surface web and the dark web are utilised by traffickers to recruit and sell victims of human trafficking.  This report explores how traffickers are using social engineering and technology to perform their trade.  It looks at advances in fighting cybercrime, both legal and illegal and makes recommendations towards an increase of fighting human trafficking in cyberspace.
