Project description:

A “first responders e-learning” package focusing on essential IT forensics and IT crime knowledge will be created, localised in EU languages and kept up-to-date to allow first-line police officers to:

  • Identify and seize potential electronic evidence, including “live data” forensics.
  • Get awareness on cybercrime, the internet, the Internet of Things, encryption and decryption, dark web and cryptocurrencies.
  • Assist victims of crimes facilitated by the use of new technologies when taking the complaint and starting a criminal case and provide first help.
  • Advice on how to use the NOMORERANSOM tools

The deliverable package is solving the ever-challenging “pre-requisites” topics required before residential training while providing a common sound reference for all LEA first responders (non-specialised field police officers) as well to all attendees to more expert level IT forensics courses.

With an expected audience of over 1.5 million law enforcement first responders in the EU, a deliverable e-learning course package is available free of costs to all LEA with additional organisation or country-wide related content.
