Growing Cybercrime: Assessing Preparedness of Law Enforcement
The Union Home Ministry acknowledges that India is increasingly susceptible to international cyberattacks, and the increasing move toward digitization means that security experts in law enforcement need to become adept at investigation, detecting and thwarting cybercriminal activities. While most countries have been successful in protecting the physical space by establishing credible deterrence to thwart crime, it's been a challenge to ensure cybercriminals are identified and prosecuted.
It's getting much more difficult to identify or locate criminal use of the internet because of its inherent anonymity and the use of sophisticated encryption techniques. Additionally, many crimes today have a digital evidence component, which means the integrity of the digital evidence must be protected. Against this backdrop, how do we ensure that all stakeholders collaborate and respond collectively to enable law enforcement to tackle cybercrime effectively?
This session addresses:
- How law enforcement is empowered to tackle new-age crimes and cybercrimes;
- The training and capacity-building of law enforcement; and
- Learning the art of responding to cybercrime through innovation.
