Ten law enforcement/criminal justice officers from five Eastern Partner countries (Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine) will be supported through the joint European Union-Council of Europe CyberEast project to participate in the upcoming long-distance master programme Forensic Computing and Cybercrime Investigation offered by University College Dublin, Ireland.
The programme will start in September 2020 and run for 24 months, covering modules such as Computer Forensics, Network Investigations, Financial Investigation Techniques – Following the Money, Mobile Devices Investigation, Programming for Investigators, Live Data Forensics, VoIP and Wireless Investigations and others.
The learning methods will consist of a mix of lectures, hands-on labs, case studies, reading, small group and individual exercises, tool demonstrations and in-depth discussions.
By the end of the master programme, the students will have strengthened their competencies, analytical and practical skills to carry out cybercrime investigations and computer forensic analyses, by better familiarising themselves also with issues related to the search, seizure and confiscation of proceeds from online crime. Following highest academic standards during the delivery of the long-distance master programme, these competencies and skills will be certified by the University College Dublin, Ireland.
This activity is organised in the framework of the joint European Union and Council of Europe CyberEast project aiming to support cyber resilience of the Eastern Partnership countries, in collaboration with the joint EU-CoE iPROCEEDS-2 project on targeting crime proceeds on the Internet and securing electronic evidence in the South-Eastern Europe and Turkey.
