SICP ANNOUNCED THE LAUNCH OF CRYPTOCERT

On July 30, the SICP (Security Intelligence Cryptocurrencies Platform) platform announced the launch of the first Russian commercial Center for monitoring cryptocurrency transactions, identifying the risks of cryptocurrency wallets and responding to incidents in the field of cryptocurrency circulation (CryptoCERT).

This service is the first in Russia and the UIS. Today, any citizen or organization can send information about fraud (another threat or risk) related to cryptocurrencies. Additionally, the publicly available interactive map displays profiled crypto wallets by country. The custom menu allows you to display one or more profiles. The legend displays the share and number of wallets associated with the profile. For registered and verified users, a wider visualization functionality is available.

It should be noted that on July 22, the State Duma of the Russian Federation adopted in the 3rd reading the law "On digital financial assets". The new rules will enter into force on January 1, 2021. The law "On digital currency" is expected to be considered in the coming autumn.

Remarkably, today is World Day Against Trafficking in Persons. It is a serious crime and gross violation of human rights. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), as the guarantor of the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and the Protocols thereto, assists States in their efforts to implement the Trafficking in Persons Protocol.

By the way, this factor is taken into account when assessing the risks of crypto wallets, in the SmartEcho service, and identifying suspicious transactions ...

The quarantine situation causes the rapid development of distance services, as well as the widespread use of contactless payments and electronic currencies. At the same time, a significant event took place on the Russian cryptocurrency market. A few days ago, the SICP platform team received a notification from the Federal Intellectual Property Service of the Russian Federation about the state registration of a computer program (03/18/2020 No. 2020613600) - Security Intelligence Cryptocurrency Platform (SICP) or Cognitive (corporate) analytics system Transaction Cryptocurrency Asset.

The platform’s web services are designed to provide cybersecurity for the infrastructure of blockchains (distributed registries) and implement anti-fraud measures in the field of cryptocurrency circulation. Functionality: risk assessment of Digital Assets; cryptocurrency investigations; conducting complex events in the field of cryptocurrency circulation; cryptocurrency wallet and ICO reliability assessment; tracking transactions correlating with a real object (organization); ordering advice on the possibility of an investigation (and the collection of necessary evidence); Advanced analytics of public blockchains and reports on suspicious transactions and related objects.

Today, a large number of SICP users leave user ratings about crypto-wallets and transactions, researchers actively use the SmartEcho and CryptoSonar services to evaluate crypto-wallets and visualize research (investigation) scenes, experts use CryptoSonar and MetaSphere services to save scenes and analyze the wallet and transaction pool (by internal tags).

In your personal account, verification tools are available for owners of crypto-wallets and even crypto-firms, with obtaining the appropriate status (and the ability to share certificates on social networks and on sites). There is the possibility of monitoring wallets for incoming / outgoing transactions (other events), saved scenes and functionality for conducting joint investigations (by registered users).

It is noteworthy that it is on Cosmonautics Day that we will announce this event! .. A significant step, if not for the entire global financial and technological sector, then surely for the entire industry of end-to-end technologies...

Paris, 17 December 2019 - The Russian Federation (Russia) has an in-depth understanding of its money laundering and terrorist financing risks and has established policies and laws to address these risks, but it should enhance its approach to supervision and prioritise the investigation and prosecution of complex money laundering cases, especially concerning money being laundered abroad.

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the Eurasian Group and MONEYVAL, assessed Russia’s anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing (AML/CFT) system. The assessment is a comprehensive review of the effectiveness of Russia’s measures and their compliance with the FATF Recommendations. This includes an assessment of its actions to address the risks emanating from UN and domestically designated terrorists and terrorist organisations. The report does not address the justification that led to the domestic designation of an entity as a terrorist or terrorist group or organisation.

Russia recognises that it faces significant money laundering risks as a result of the proceeds of crimes committed within the country, in particular those related to corruption and its role as both a transit and destination country for narcotics trafficking. A national risk assessment, complemented by in-depth knowledge of relevant law enforcement agencies, has allowed the country to identify and understand its risks, including terrorist financing risks. Russia’s legal framework appropriately addresses these risks and the country has formal policies in place, supported by strong domestic co-ordination and co-operation, to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. However, the country needs to address gaps in its ability to freeze, without delay, assets linked to terrorism, financing of terrorism and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and ensure that this freezing obligation extends to all natural and legal persons.

In general, Russia cooperates with foreign counterparts, including through more than 100 international co-operation agreements with its financial intelligence unit, Rosfmonitoring. Authorities make excellent use of financial intelligence, based on a wealth of collected data and analysed with sophisticated technologies to contribute to money laundering and terrorist financing investigations. While the country has prioritised getting money back for the victims of crimes – around EUR 816 million per year – it needs to focus more on the investigation and prosecution of complex money laundering cases, especially concerning money being laundered abroad.

Russia has strengthened its oversight of the banking sector and has now mitigated the risks of criminals being the owners or controllers of financial institutions. However, deficiencies in licensing remain and the sanctions for banks that do not comply with AML/CFT requirements are not effective or dissuasive.

In general, financial and certain non-financial entities such as accountants and auditors, have a good understanding of how their services could be used to launder the proceeds of criminal activity or terrorist financing, but given that Russia is a significant centre for mining precious metals and stones, this sector’s understanding of risk is not in line with the country’s risk assessment.

Since its last assessment in 2008, Russia has strengthened its understanding of the money laundering and terrorist financing risks it faces and has developed a robust legal framework to address them. The country has taken a number of actions that have delivered concrete results. But, the country needs to address the areas of weakness this report has identified.

The FATF adopted this report at its October 2019 Plenary meeting.

On September 3, 2019, in St. Petersburg, specialists and residents of the SafeNet RIC of the St. Petersburg Technopark, together with the Russoft NP and Bee Pitron, held a presentation session for the Indian delegation of Infinity Group. The key focus of the event was the creation of a platform for interaction between participants in the Russian-Indian market.

As part of the meeting, Igor Bederov presented the developments of the Special Development Department for a distinguished guest from India. Mr. Darbari drew particular attention to existing developments in the field of cryptocurrency transaction control and crime prevention. According to him, in India, up to 20% of the population and a significant amount of low-level crime use cryptocurrencies. In addition, the country has not resolved the problem of relapse in previously convicted criminals.

Back in July, in the format of the Second Russian-Indian strategic dialogue, in order to establish a technology transfer, an agreement was signed between RUSSOFT and Infinity Group. As a result, the ICT Center of Excellence project was launched in India, designed to establish cooperation between the two countries in the direction of business development and international assistance to SMEs.

The delegation of the Infinity Group, headed by Mr. Darbari, flew to Russia to meet with potential recipients of investments and to transfer technology from Russia to India under the “Made in India” program.

After a tour of the engineering center, SafeNet residents presented their projects in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, cyberphysical security, blockchain, virtual and augmented reality. The parties discussed the situation on the international high-tech market and considered options for potential mutually beneficial cooperation. ICT experts emphasized the relevance of Russian solutions to the market of India and other countries and discussed the possibility of implementation.

Orlando, FL, United States – 21 June 2019. Financial innovation has drastically changed the financial landscape. New technologies, services and products offer efficient alternatives to classic financial products and can improve financial inclusion. At the same time, the speed and anonymity of some of these innovative products can attract criminals and terrorist who wish to use them to launder the proceeds of their crimes and finance their illicit activities.

This guidance will help countries and virtual asset service providers understand their anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing obligations, and effectively implement the FATF’s requirements as they apply to this sector.

This guidance follows revisions to the FATF Recommendations in October 2018 and June 2019 in response to the increasing use of virtual assets for money laundering and terrorist financing. The FATF strengthened its standards to clarify the application of anti-money laundering and counter- terrorist financing requirements on virtual assets and virtual asset service providers. Countries are now required to assess and mitigate their risks associated with virtual asset financial activities and providers; license or register providers and subject them to supervision or monitoring by competent national authorities. Virtual asset service providers are subject to the same relevant FATF measures that apply to financial institutions.

The guidance addresses the following:

- How do virtual assets activities and virtual asset service providers fall within the scope of the FATF Recommendations? (Section II)
- How should countries and competent authorities apply the FATF Recommendations in the context of virtual assets or virtual asset service providers? (Section III)
- How do the FATF Recommendations apply to virtual asset service providers, and other entities (including banks, securities broker-dealers) that engage in or provide virtual asset covered activities?

The guidance, which benefited from dialogue with the private sector, also includes examples of national approaches to regulating and supervising virtual asset activities and virtual asset service providers to prevent their misuse for money laundering and terrorist financing.

BRUSSELS, 1000, BELGIUM, June 18, 2019. CYBERPOL Public Search Criminal Database to include Crypto Currency wallets used in cyber crime.

CYBERPOL The International Cyber Policing Organization established by decree no WL 22/16.595 established today four years ago in Brussels made available to the public the first cyber criminal database empowered by the "Neural symbiotic network of the super computer" as the international cyber utility agency leader in investigation in cyber crimes and terror of the Dark-Web today.

This first Cyber Criminal Public Record Database in Beta Test mode currently will allow four basic levels of searching of wanted cyber criminals allowing for verification and searches of IP's, emails and Cryptocurrency wallets used in on-line scams related to cyber crimes listed in the database.

In addition to this, all cryptowallets using crypto currencies in cybercrime will now be listed on the Cyber Crime search engine by CYBERPOL organization making it very difficult for cyber criminals to use crypto-currencies as payment methods for scams and cyber crimes.

You can now report any scam email to CYBERPOL that when verified will be listed in the CYBERPOL Cyber Criminal Public Database open to public to search.

More than £108,000 in bitcoin was paid by victims of the WannaCry ransomware attacks using bitcoin as undetectable crypto-currency payment. Since such wallets used in crimes are not considered privacy breaches but in the interest of the law it is in the public interest to warn public and make such wallets black listed public records globally before further victims falls pray to cyber crimes Baretzky President of CYBERPOL said.

Public and law enforcement can use this CYBERPOL facilities for free and report such e-mail of extortion to be entered into the public records of CYBERPOL Public Utility directly by requests.

Several entries is already public to search on-line and don't try to fool CYBERPOL. The tracking of cyber crimes goes the extra mile to track the same hackers when visiting the search engine on CYBERPOL website using a new AI (Artificial Intelligence) named 666 to capture both mac and serial number of such computers. Don't be a hackers fool to search yourselves if you are already involved in cyber crimes, the CYBERPOL Spokes Person warned.

This will be a huge blow for crypto currencies and wallets used in cyber crimes and scams as the wallet numbers will be public listed and open to see to all public and law-enforcement free of charges in disrupting cyber crimes.

The message is clear and simple President Ricardo Baretzky of CYBERPOL said "Don't use any Crypto Currencies in INTERNET crimes as we will not only find you but list your crypto WALLET accounts for good in the block-chain based search engine of CYBERPOL Supper Computer AI 666 symbiotic neural network and let me assure all those financial criminals, once listed there is no escape! I hope this message is clear to criminals and corruption".

It seems the days messing with elections using secret corruption payments could be counted as CYBERPOL has set a new paradigm in combating cyber crimes and global corruption never seen before...

On May 9, 2019, FinCEN released guidelines for applying the rules to some of the Business Models for Attracting Convertible Virtual Currencies. To remind individuals under the Banking Secrets Act (BSA) about how FinCEN rules relating to companies providing monetary services (MSBs) apply to certain business models related to the transfer of money denominated in value, which replaces currency, in particular, convertible virtual currencies (CVCs).

This guidance does not establish any new regulatory expectations or requirements. Rather, it consolidates current FinCEN regulations, and related administrative rulings and guidance issued since 2011, and then applies these rules and interpretations to other common business models involving CVC engaging in the same underlying patterns of activity.

This guidance is intended to help financial institutions comply with their existing obligations under the BSA as they relate to current and emerging business models involving CVC by describing FinCEN’s existing regulatory approach to the issues most frequently raised by industry, law enforcement, and other regulatory bodies within this evolving financial environment. In this regard, it covers only certain business models and necessarily does not address every potential combination of facts and circumstances. Thus, a person working with a business model not specifically included in this guidance may still have BSA obligations.

The overall structure of this guidance is as follows:

Section 1 defines certain key concepts within the context of the guidance. Although the titles or names assigned to these key concepts may coincide with terms customarily used by industry and share similar attributes, for purposes of the guidance their meaning is limited to the definition provided in the guidance.

Section 2 consolidates and explains current FinCEN regulations, previous administrative rulings, and guidance involving the regulation of money transmission under the BSA. By consolidating and summarizing rules and interpretation in a single Section, this guidance provides a resource to help financial institutions comply with their existing obligations under the BSA as they relate to current and emerging activities involving CVC.

Section 3 summarizes the development and content of FinCEN’s 2013 guidance on the application of money transmission regulations to transactions denominated in CVC.

Sections 4 and 5 describe FinCEN’s existing regulatory approach to current and emerging business models using patterns of activity involving CVC. This approach illustrates how FinCEN fits existing interpretations about certain activities to other activities that at first may seem unrelated, but conform to the same combination of key facts and circumstances.

Finally, Section 6 contains a list of resources to which interested parties may refer for further explanation about the content of the guidance, or to assist in evaluating facts and circumstances not expressly covered in this guidance.
