UNODC Strengthens El Salvador Capacities to Fight Cybercrime

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime in collaboration with El Salvador Prosecutor's Academy developed the First Training Module "Cybercrime against Information Systems, Data and Other Legally Protected Goods". The training Module was held from 17 to 21 October 2016, in San Salvador.

The training module was attended by 26 prosecutors from different units: Unit Against Crimes to Private Property and Intellectual Property, Claims Receiving Unit and Criminal Youth Unit. The training module focused on El Salvador Special Law on Cybercrime and Related Offenses. Specifically the Special Law Chapter explained at the training module were: Chapter 1, Crimes against Systems; Chapter 2, Crimes against Property; and, Chapter 3, Crimes against Data and Information. For each crime sanctioned by the Special Law it was explained legal interest at stake, ruling verb, regulatory elements and sanction.

The training also covered aspects such as: Present digital evidence before court, witness preparation and interrogation and processing of cybercrime scene. The training concluded with a mock trial performed by the participants in order to ensure a better understanding of the training module's content.

The training module was developed thanks to the financial resources provided by the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) of the Embassy of the United States in El Salvador under the project "Strengthening of the capacities of El Salvador National Police to effectively identify and investigate cybercrime cases", implemented by UNODC Global Programme on Cybercrime in El Salvador.
