The Training unit provides simple but clear guidelines for practitioners, which include (but are not limited to): law enforcement, specialized practitioners, educators, and policy makers.
Law Enforcement Trainings
The primary goal of law enforcement agencies should be to expand our technological capabilities in monitoring cybercrime issues. Some cybercrime training programs already exist at the federal level. However, these federal training programs are limited to only local agents working with major police departments in states. State and local law enforcement agencies should expand their technological capabilities to monitor cybercrime issues. The Center for CIC can serve to facilitate this important role.
Community Service – The Cybercrime Prevention Program
Educating the general public is an effective strategy in minimizing the potential risks of cybercrime. More specifically, civilian education geared towards cybersecurity is crucial in mitigating the risks and/or levels of victimization associated with cybercrime. Practical knowledge such as informing the public on the importance of securing home wireless networks by employing strong password protections for Internet access can ultimately aid in minimizing the risks of cybercrime victimization.
The greatest way of minimizing cybercrime threats at the state and local level would be through active community engagement in raising awareness of potential cybercrime activity on the Internet. The Center for CIC can offer training for community networks on how to recognize potential cybercriminals and report suspicious activities to law enforcement agencies as well as to prevent individuals from becoming potential cyber-criminals in the future.
