@SDCAnews “Today we revealed the most sophisticated effort in disrupting the activities of criminals operating around the globe. Let this serve as a warning to those criminals who believe they are operating under an encrypted cloak of secrecy-your criminal communications may NOT be secure"
@SDCAnews In an innovative effort, the FBI, with the help of the Australian Federal Police, launched their own encrypted communications platform and supplied more than 12,000 devices to hundreds of criminal organizations that operate around the globe. #FBI #OperationTrojanShield
@SDCAnews The FBI’s San Diego Field Office was the hub for the more than 100 agents and analysts and 80 linguists who were pooled together for the operation that began with the takedown of the encrypted phone provider Phantom Secure ( ow.ly/Onb230rKc0F). #FBI #OperationTrojanShield
@SDCAnews After Phantom Secure, investigators came up with a solution that would do more than cause the organized crime groups to shift to different platforms, such as Sky Global and EncroChat.
@SDCAnews “When we took down Phantom Secure in 2018, we found the criminal organizations moved quickly to back-up options with other encrypted platforms.” FBI San Diego Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jamie Arnold
@SDCAnews The FBI and its partners will continue to dismantle transnational organized criminal organizations, wherever they are and however they choose to communicate. #FBI #OperationTrojanShield #Partnerships
