Tech partnership to combat wildlife crimes online

11 December 2018

Non-profit organisation African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) has partnered with digital security firm Irdeto to combat poaching and wildlife crimes online.

According to the organisations, the illegal selling of animal parts is the fourth biggest illicit industry worldwide, after drugs, counterfeit goods and human trafficking.
 

Wildlife crimes not only decimate animal populations but also have a negative effect on the entire ecosystem, impacting local economies that rely on these ecosystems for tourism.
 

AWF and Irdeto will use Irdeto's suite of cybersecurity services and technologies to investigate, identify and disrupt the sale of animal parts on the Internet.
