CyberPolice Training Program
Cyberspace teeming with information and valuable assets is turning out to be the most profitable and desired place for criminals today. News about their attacks, paralysing individual’s defence mechanisms and seizing their wealth; or concerted attacks to bring down government communication infrastructure refreshes our memories about the stories we heard on the pirates of the sea and of the robbers emerging from the ravines!
The World Wide Web houses about 2 billion websites shrinking the world into an interconnected global village. The internet being the catalyst for the world’s technological progress it has turned out to be the hub of organized cyberspace crimes! And this malady growing at a faster pace than ever before calls for nurturing of cyber-skilled individuals – the cyber police!
As per Juniper research report, the losses incurred due to cybercrimes in the year 2019 alone amounts to a whopping $2 trillion! To counter this surge in cybercrimes, international organisations and government bodies of different countries have been gearing up to equip the police with expertise and skills for cybercrime investigation.
Global Market Insights report
By the year 2024 the cyber security market will be a $300 billion industry. In fact, it seems that the amount will be much more than that as technology advances exponentially.
Of course, combating this new genre of crimes, that defies physical and virtual borders, requires the cyber cell of the police department keep pace with the technological developments.
- Europol set up European Cybercrime Center for protecting European citizens, businesses and governments from online crime.
- Law Enforcement Cyber Center is a one-stop shop for cyber-related information for local, state and tribal law enforcement.
- Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) was created with the mission to help FBI effectively handle cybercrime.
- Interpol implemented Cyber Capacity Development Project for fighting cyber-crime in 10 ASEAN countries.

Cyber Policing Program
Discerning the dire need of the hour, we raise a clarion call too! Our cyber policing program, Rocheston’s Police Cybersecurity Training Program is designed for the cyber investigators who want to stand against cyber threats and the criminals.
Designing and managing a competent cyber policing program is a great challenge. To help state and regional/local crime investigators and cyber detectives do the best job, cyber policing has to be developed intensively. This can be done through well organized webinars, training & technical assistance programs and publications focussing on cyber crimes and prevention.
Training and sensitizing those in charge of crime detection and control should be the priority. Different countries have formulated Cyber Security Policies with active coordination with Sectoral Cybersecurity Cell, Computer Emergency Response Teams and policy makers.
Categorization of the various cybercrimes and understanding the entire gamut of the cyberthreats we are exposed to, are the important tasks.
There has been a steep rise in breach of cyber security incidents in recent years through use of malwares, hacking of websites, antisocial activities and theft of sensitive information. Cybercrimes are low risk and high on returns! An average cybercriminal makes 10-15% higher than regular criminals. That makes it very attractive for the criminals indulging in them. What’s more, cyber threats are global!
“Cybercrime has now overtaken ‘traditional crime’. Indeed, there were 5 million reported cases of cybercrime last year, accounting for half of all UK crime and costing roughly £192 billion” said the Lord Mayor of London Dr Andrew Parmley at the proceedings at the Mansion House.
On one hand, the Internet has opened a world of new opportunities, information, and networking for the common man. On the other hand, it has become a highway for traffic of illegal information, trade, and espionage.
Criminals can be anonymous, use encryption to break into government systems, financial institutions, and corporate frameworks to steal information, money, identities, or worse.

It is of paramount importance to secure the information, data, or evidence for forensic analysis. Digital forensics is a subdivision of forensic science, which deals with the discovery, acquirement, and investigation of data related to and from electronic devices.
Digital devices these days contain a massive amount of information that is commonly being integrated with email IDs, social media, cloud services, and synchronized apps. This data can contain comprehensive sequences of events implicating criminal intentions, relationships between networks of offenders, and the location of suspects during criminal offenses.
Counterintelligence programs are created for collecting data and take account of activities carried out to defend against espionage, other intelligence activities, sabotage, or assassinations executed by or on account of overseas governments, or elements of overseas entities, individuals, or global terrorist activities. Server logs, network devices, embedded software should be investigated.
Cyber espionage is a variation of cybercrime that steals private, restricted, personal data or intellectual property to obtain an advantage over a competing organization, or state entity. Research, however, indicates that there is a list of the 34 countries with well-funded cyber espionage squads that may comprise programmers, researchers, scientists, and engineers that form hacking teams.
Cyber resilience helps to detect and mitigate threats and also monitor and respond to cyber-attacks. The threat and risk analysis establish the vital assets of the organisation, prioritises a list of threat actors, their motivation and capabilities.
Cyber investigators should be aware of the six varieties of risks computers are susceptible to:
- Risks due to I.T. (software, hardware, people, protocol)
- Risks due to contact with external providers and parties (banks, other entities, etc.)
- Risks due to external suppliers (subcontractors, cloud providers, etc.)
- Risks due to disruptions in logistics and IT equipment
- Innovative new tech (such as the emerging IoT)
- Vulnerabilities to upstream infrastructure (water and power supplies, etc.)
Cybercrime and mobile phones are closely linked:
- Tracking GPS location and cell tower location for mobile threats
- Spying on children and women using mobile agents and spyware
- Phone hacking
- Mobile pornography
- Identity theft
- Mobile cyber stalking
- Mobile Software piracy
- Mobile phishing
- Mobile virus dissemination
- Phone banking frauds
- Impersonation and stalking using mobile phones
