Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP; https://www.occrp.org/) is an investigative reporting platform formed by 24 non-profit investigative centers, scores of journalists and several major regional news organizations around the globe, and operated by Journalism Development Network. Work we've done involves being involved in the original Panama Papers, among many other projects. Because of the work we do security is paramount to us.

VIsual Investigative Scenarios (VIS; https://vis.occrp.org/) is a data visualization platform designed to assist investigative journalists, activists and others in mapping complex business or crime networks. Its aim is to help investigators understand and explain corruption, organized crime and other wrongdoings and to translate complex narratives into simple, universal visual language.

    • a limited edition T-shirt with OCCRP logo and text "I helped Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project be more secure and all I got is this lousy T-shirt"; reported vulnerability does not mean the Hunter automatically wins a t-shirt - OCCRP will evaluate the criticity of the reported vulnerability using CVSS and base the decision to award a T-shirt to a hunter based on that and YesWeHack staff recommendations.
