10th Cybercrime Awareness Workshop for Law Enforcement Agencies

The issue of Cyber Crimes is emerging as a big challenge for Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) around the world and India is no exception. With its growing economy, huge IT industry, increasing roll out of e-Governance and online applications and burgeoning tech-savvy generation of citizens – all are very attractive for organized cyber criminals to target India and its citizens.

Department of Electronics & Information Technology (DeitY) has led the fight against cybercrimes not only through the IT Act 2000 and Amendment in 2008 to cover more variety of cybercrimes. It has also pioneered the development of cyber forensics package through its R&D program. DeitY has helped train police officers at various levels through a number of its programs that include training and forensic facilities at CBI, NPA, and some of the state police centers.

Data Security Council of India (DSCI), promoted by NASSCOM, on the other hand has trained police officers in its cyber labs in different cities for the past 5 years. DSCI has also developed & published a ‘Cyber Crime Investigation Manual’ to help and guide the police officers in cybercrime investigations using cyber forensic tools and standard operating procedures. More than 45000 personnel from Law enforcement, prosecution department, Judiciary and other departments have been trained in cybercrime investigations and cyber forensics.

The training program needs to be supplemented by conducting awareness programs on cybercrimes in many other states where such labs are not operational and hence, DSCI with the support of DeitY has proposed a 2-day workshops across various states which aims to provide awareness to Police officers, Public Prosecutors, Judiciary, Adjudicating officers on combating cybercrimes and the requirement of building capability. Under the project, nine workshops have been organised in cities including Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Bhopal, Lucknow, Jaipur, Patna, Himachal Pradesh, Meghalaya and Uttarakhand in which more than 1100 officers were benefitted.

This workshop is exclusively for officials from Law Enforcement only.
