Save the Date: BU MET to Host Third Annual International White Hat Conference

Boston University Metropolitan College’s Criminal Justice Graduate Programs are hosting the Third Annual International White Hat Conference, June 1 & 2, 2022—mark your calendar today!


Supported by the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), and in partnership with Utica College, the virtual White Hat Conference will gather cybersecurity resources and criminal justice talent to address this year’s theme, “The Evolution of Illicit Crypto Use: Current Approaches and Future Challenges for Financial and Government Sectors.”


Over the years, the use of cryptocurrency has reportedly been prevalent in illicit darkweb marketplaces, especially in sex and drug trafficking incidents, ransomware, and various financial schemes. However, the existing capabilities of many law enforcement agencies are limited, and local and state law enforcement officers often lack the expertise to identify and acquire potential evidential artifacts from contemporary consumer technologies to support the elements of proof required in a successful prosecution. Focusing on the “Evolution of Illicit Crypto Use,” the Third Annual White Hat Conference is an effort to bring disruptive change to cybercrime investigation, exploring innovative techniques and global measures to bring about effective criminal justice policies and establish preventive measures— leading to more efficient investigations and successful prosecutions.
