The Ukrainian start-up from the ecosystem of the IT company IdeaSoft Global Ledger became a partner of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), a specialized UN agency that deals with the fight against the spread of drugs and related crimes, in launching a new course on cryptocurrencies.
The courses are focused on countering the illegal use of digital assets. During the course, participants will be able to:
- conduct real cybercrime investigations;
- study violations of the regulatory regime with the help of professional solutions (including GL-Vision);
- to get practice both based on historical data and in “live” cases.
The course will be used during the training of representatives of the Cyber Police of Ukraine, the Ministry of Digital Transformation, and the State Financial Monitoring Service.
The relevance of this course has increased in connection with Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine. At the moment, the course is already successfully used in the training of representatives of the Ukrainian cyber police, the State Financial Monitoring Service, and the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine to prevent the use of cryptocurrencies in criminal and terrorist activities and to circumvent international sanctions.
“We understand that the current speed of implementation of FATF Recommendation 15, guidelines, and other regulations on cryptocurrencies at the international and national levels may not keep up with the pace of development of the industry. “The sunrise problem” (jurisdictions that host virtual asset operators without proper oversight) remains an acute problem. Moreover, every year criminals use new ways to launder “dirty” cryptocurrencies. Therefore, we are ready to continue to actively promote education in this area to help improve the work of international organizations and law enforcement agencies,” says Lex Fisun, co-founder of Global Ledger.
