According to the FBI, the threat from cyber crimes is serious – and growing. And it’s not just corporations that are at risk from this threat. Citizens in your communities could be targets of fraudsters and identity thieves, or children could be targeted by online predators.

While at the NYPD, Roger Rodriguez analyzed images for cyber-crime investigations such as prostitution rings, identity theft, fraud, and child exploitation. In many cases, these investigations included poor quality images obtained from crime victims, social media, or other online sources.

Topics Include:

  • Cyber crime overview
  • Using facial recognition in cyber crime investigations
  • Occlusion (any part of the face blocked or covered)
  • Image editing techniques for CCTV or social media images
  • Use case examples
Roger Rodriguez joined Vigilant Solutions after serving over twenty years with the NYPD where he spearheaded the NYPD’s first dedicated facial recognition unit. The unit has conducted more than 8,500 facial recognition investigations, with over 3,000 possible matches, and approximately 2,000 arrests. Roger’s enhancement techniques are now recognized worldwide and have changed the approach to law enforcement’s utilization of facial recognition technology.
