Project description

A “first responders e-learning” package focusing on essential IT forensics and IT crime knowledge is 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.
  • Gain 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.
  • Advise 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 Europe, a deliverable e-learning course package is available free of cost to all LEA, with additional organisation or country-wide related content.

An English version is available, and the localised version in additional languages are available since May 2019 (latest update in May 2021).
