On the invitation of the INTERPOL, the Cyber Security and Technology Crime Bureau (CSTCB) ran the "Joint Cybercrime Workshop for Law Enforcement Managers and Central Authorities of Mutual Legal Assistance" in Singapore from August 27 to 31 for INTERPOL's member countries of Asia-Pacific, Africa and Latin America.
The workshop provided training in cyber security to INTERPOL's member countries with the aim of enhancing the participants' capabilities in investigating cross-jurisdictional technology crime. It also fostered intelligence exchanges and partnerships among the participants to cope with the ever-changing cyber threats.
Chief Inspector Tai Tze-bun, Senior Inspectors Au Yeung Hau-ying, Chan Wai-see and Chan Hung, Inspector Wong Yat-fung and Sergeants Chan Weng-fai and Ho Car-lin conducted the workshop in Singapore. Forty-two officers from 19 member countries attended the workshop to exchange knowledge of and experience in crime investigation.
With the proliferation of technology crime and cyber security threats, commanders of law enforcement agencies and prosecutors face similar challenges. The workshop equipped the participants with the necessary skills in handling cyber security incidents. The contributions of the Hong Kong Police Force to the workshop and its collaborative partnership with the INTERPOL were highly appreciated.
