hypnosec writes: Google is on a mission to help find criminals and terrorists who use the web to accomplish their notorious deeds. Google is going to make use of its extensive search capabilities in order to expose any illegal activities. The search leader has launched a campaign that will target the secrecy of drug cartels, cyber criminals, violent radicals and the likes. The search engine giant has assembled politicians, academics, law enforcement agencies, victims along with technology experts for its summit in Los Angeles dubbed Illicit Networks: Forces in Opposition. Google’s think tank division, Google Ideas, has joined forces with Interpol, Council on Foreign Relations and other such agencies in a bid to find ways to use technology against terrorists, organized crime and others. The summit is going to be benefited with the presence of Ronald Noble, Interpol's secretary general; Alejandro Poire, Mexico's interior minister; Andy Weber, assistant secretary for nuclear, chemical and biological defense programs at the US department of defense among others.
