Webinars for Costa Rican Investigators in Cybercrime

Costa Rica, 4 September 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 webinars on cybercrime investigation for investigators of the Judicial Investigation Department (law enforcement).

The objective of this three-week series of talks was to develop investigators’ skills to conduct criminal investigations that involve digital technologies.
The webinars were divided into three issue areas: a. Basic concepts of cybercrime and digital evidence, with a focus on the legal framework and due process; b. Cross-cutting aspects (e.g. Internet of Things, dark web and cryptocurrency); and, c. Hands-on skills (e.g. requesting assistance from foreign internet service providers, as well as open-source intelligence techniques and tools).

In this context, different topics were developed, such as digital evidence, malicious software, cryptocurrency, international cooperation channels, organized cybercrime, and online child sexual abuse.
This activity has been made possible thanks to the funding from the Canadian and Norwegian governments to the UNODC Global Programme on Cybercrime.
