DSCI brings Cybercrime Training Material to train cyber cops

Data Security Council of India (DSCI) has released ‘Cybercrime Training Material Level-2’ to train police officers in a five-day program through DSCI Cyber Labs. The program focuses on the newest developments in technological and legal aspects of cyber-crime investigation.

Kamlesh Bajaj, CEO, DSCI, focusing on DSCI work on bringing cyber forensics to the mainstream in the country, stated, “One of the first tasks DSCI undertook after the establishment was the transfer of cyber labs from NASSCOM. Since then, over 45,000 personnel from law enforcement agencies have been trained. In this regard, our publications such as the cybercrime training material Level-1 released in 2011, handbook on cybercrime Investigation procedures, in 2013 and the cybercrime training material Level-2 now, have played an integral role in guiding cybercrime investigations.”

Commending efforts by DSCI in capacity building of LEAs to better handle cybercrimes, R Chandrashekhar, President NASSCOM said,While cybercrimes affect security and rights of individuals, they also strengthen transnational criminal organizations and risk critical information infrastructure on which societies depend and undermine the security and trust necessary to harvest benefits of ICT.

While underling the importance of building capacities of law enforcement, R Chandrashekhar said “Capacity building – including resource mobilization, training and sharing of best practices are essential for enabling the law enforcement capacities in dealing with technical investigations.” He further added “here, public education and awareness become essential elements to prevent cybercrimes”.

As a part of this initiative, the DSCI Cybercrime Investigation Training Material adds to the capacity building of cyber-crime investigators.
