Investigators in Costa Rica Trained in Cybercrime and Digital Forensics

Costa Rica, 29 July 2020. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime for Central America and the Caribbean (UNODC ROPAN) through the Global Programme on Cybercrime delivered a series of webminars for investigators on basics of cybercrime and digital forensics for investigators of the Judicial Investigation Department (OIJ).

The objective of this three-week series of webminars was to develop investigators’ skills to conduct criminal investigations that involve digital elements and/or challenges.

The webminars were divided in three issue areas: a. Basic concepts of cybercrime and digital evidence; b. Cross-cutting aspects (e.g. Internet of Things and cryptocurrency); and, c. Hands-on skills (e.g. requesting assistance from foreign internet service providers and open-source intelligence techniques and tools).

In this context, topics such as digital evidence, malware, cryptocurrency, international cooperation mechanisms, organized cybercrime and online child sexual abuse were developed.

This training has been made possible thanks to the funding from the Canadian and Norwegian governments to the UNODC Global Programme on Cybercrime
