Keven Hendricks is the founder of the Ubivis Project. Serving in law enforcement since 2007, Keven has been on the front line of combating cybercrime since 2014, being a member of an Internet Crimes Against Children FBI Task Force from 2014 to 2018, and a member of a DEA cybercrimes Task Force from 2018 to 2021. In his time spent with the latter, Keven developed the idea for the Ubivis Project as the disconnect between SLTT law enforcement and federal partners was astounding; whereas cases involving “dark web” vendors were going unrecognized or uninvestigated, under the perception ‘nothing’ could be done. He is a published author with the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin on VoIP investigations as well as an instructor on dark web and cyber crimes for Street Cop Training and Federal Resources. He is an 3CE and 3CI by the NW3C, and is recognized as a Subject Matter Expert in the field through the CSIAC.
