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, internet, encryption, dark web and cryptocurrencies.
- Assist victims of crimes facilitated by the use of new technologies when taking the complaint and starting a criminal case.
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, over 1.5 million law enforcement first responders in EU, deliverable e-learning course package will be available free of costs to all LEA with the additional organisation or country-wide related content.
English version is available, and the localised version in additional languages are available since May 2019 :
- Flemish (Dutch)
- Arabic (in cooperation with the Council of Europe)
- Thaï (in cooperation with UNODC)
other additional languages will later be added.
