Subversive Crime

Understanding Subversive Crime

Criminal underworlds are increasingly intertwined with legitimate parties. Specifically, subversive crime refers to forms of organised crime which undermine society through the misuse of legal assets. The crimes  can range from drug trafficking to money laundering. Organisations can fall victim to the efforts of organised crime groups who infiltrate, corrupt and compromise the integrity and stability of industries and the people within. Insiders’ knowledge, trust and access represent key facilitators for organised crime groups to achieve their goals. Signpost Six offers specialised services to help organisations proactively identify and mitigate the risks of subversive crime, safeguarding their integrity and stability.

What is Ondermijning?

You might be wondering, “What exactly is Ondermijning?” This Dutch term describes a complex and significant issue where criminal activities weave into the fabric of legitimate society. Picture a situation where the lines between legal business dealings and the criminal underworld begin to fade. That’s the core of Ondermijning. It reflects a scenario where telling apart lawful practices from illegal ones becomes increasingly difficult, deeply affecting public trust and the integrity of institutions.
