As part of Internet Society Kolkata Chapter ongoing outreach activities we involve with different stakeholders for awareness, advisory and technical support. The workshop was
part of the courses organized by an apex LEA training institution on Cyber Crime Investigation. From the discussion it was evident that the majority of incidents are happening due to lack of awareness among users about the secured uses of Internet Online Services, Credit Cards etc.
LEA agencies are facing problem in reaching cyber criminal’s machines or point of operations due to the use of anonymous proxies and other tools available in market. The situation is becoming more alarming when the next evolution IoT (Internet of Things) is knocking the doors. This lack of general awareness in one hand and lighting speed adoption of Internet and its services on the other hand is creating a scary situation and LEA officials are having tough time responding to new age crime situations. The session was interactive and we discussed basic security principals and protocols like https, digital signatures, and encryption methodologies.
