Yerevan hosts Practical Cybercrime Investigation training course

PanARMENIAN.Net - From 2 to 4 April 2014, the EU Advisory Group organized a Practical Cybercrime Investigation training course, which took place at the EU Advisory Group head office.

The training was opened by H.E. Sorin Vasile, Ambassador of Romania to the Republic of Armenia and Steven David Brown, EU Advisory Group policy advisor to law enforcement.

Through a mixture of theory and practical exercises, the participants were familiarized with practical processes for detecting cybercrimes, the basics of digital forensics for operational officers and investigators and were introduced to technical tools and methods for computer network and internet investigation, according to a press release.

The EU Advisory Group policy advisor to law enforcement Steven David Brown said: “Bringing a criminal to justice is rarely easy or straightforward. In crimes involving computers, the situation is even more challenging. The evidence can disappear at the push of a button and tech-savvy criminals can hide their activity behind curtain after curtain of false trails across continents even though they live right next door. Law enforcement has to respond to modus operandi that are changing and developing on a daily basis. This training will help contribute to the national cybercrime effort in protecting the people of Armenia.”

The course was attended by the police officers, investigators, prosecutors and other officials who are responsible for preventing, detecting, investigating and prosecuting cybercrime in the Republic of Armenia.
