Who should attend?

Cybercrime Awareness is a training course designed for those employees not directly engaged with Information Secutity. It is sometimes difficult to understand constant cyber security policy revisions. More often than not a senior executive will have to oversee and pass these policy updates without having the necessary knowledge to determine their full intent or level of urgency. BII Compliance has worked with many FTSE 100 organisations to educate board members and senior employees from all business functions. 

Judicial Education

An increasing number of criminal cases and many civil and administrative matters are in one way or the other related to information and communication technologies. The majority of criminal judges and prosecutors will be confronted with cyber-crime and electronic evidence matters. It is not sufficient to train specialised judges and prosecutors only. Continual education of cyber-crime activity and electronic evidence knowledge is required.

All or the largest possible number of judges and prosecutors, therefore, need to obtain at least basic training in matters related to cyber-crime and electronic evidence. Such basic knowledge should be provided through initial training for future judges and prosecutors, and through in-service training for serving judges and prosecutors. At the same time, these are highly technical and constantly evolving issues and it cannot be expected that judges and prosecutors in general are able to keep up with technological developments at all times. It is therefore necessary to provide advanced knowledge to a sufficient number of judges and prosecutors who become specialised in cyber-crime and electronic evidence.

Course content

  • Computers and networks:
    Basic notions of the functions of the internet, role of service providers, particular challenges to judges and prosecutors.
  • Cybercrime:
    How information and communication technologies are used to commit crime.
  • Cybercrime legislation:
    Domestic legislation (including case law) and international standards
  • Jurisdiction and territorial competencies:
    Electronic evidence: technical procedures and legal considerations.

Knowledge transfer

As a result of such basic training judges and prosecutors should be in a position to:

  1. Relate criminal conduct to provisions in domestic legislation.
  2. Approve investigative techniques.
  3. Order the search and seizure of computer systems and the production of electronic evidence.
  4. Expedite international cooperation.
  5. Question witnesses and experts.
  6. Present/validate electronic evidence.

Forensic Fundamentals

Computer Forensic Fundamentals is a 1-day training course created specifically for non-technical audience who wish to gain an understanding of how to identify, handle and preserve electronic evidence. The course will provide an understanding of how computer forensic examinations are conducted and the different types of evidential artifacts that can be found on computer systems and other types of digital devices
