Fighting the Dark Nexus requires law enforcement and financial institutions to work together through stronger regulation, improved security measures, and international cooperation. By monitoring transactions, reporting suspicious activity, and sharing information, we can cut off the flow of funds that support criminal financial and cybersecurity activities.
