A slightly bumpy rollout is magnifying their impact on both industry and government but the DoD is not slowing down.

 In 2017, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) released its global, de-identified database of human trafficking victims, the largest database of its kind, containing over 50,000 individual cases from 2002 to 2018. Each of these cases is an individual tragedy and the trafficking of human life is growing and knows no race, gender or nations borders, it is truly global and the organized criminals do their trafficking on the deep and dark web daily.
