Hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children are trafficked worldwide every year, according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Trafficking can take many forms and includes forcing individuals to engage in involuntary sex acts (sex trafficking) as well as forcing people to work (labor trafficking) under threats of violence or by other means such as accumulated debt, passport retention, or threat of being reported to immigration authorities.

Companies are being held accountable for abusive practices in their supply chains—and the majority are unwitting participants. In observance of Human Trafficking Awareness Month, RIMS presents this session to inform members and risk professionals on the epidemic of modern slavery and methods for reducing and preventing this risk.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to navigate the legal, ethical, and reputational risks associated with human trafficking claims.
  • Best methods for detection, compliance, and reporting.
  • Trends in trafficking and how traffickers continually adapt to economic and technological changes.
