INVESTIGATORS AND PROSECUTORS TO BE TRAINED IN URUGUAY ON BEST PRACTICES RELATED TO CYBER CRIME
From July 10 to 13, 2012, Montevideo is hosting a regional training workshop on investigative techniques in the area of cybercrime and electronic evidence, organized jointly by the Department of Justice of the United States, the Government of the Oriental Republic of Uruguay and the OAS General Secretariat, through the Department of Legal Cooperation of the Secretariat for Legal Affairs and the Secretariat of the Inter-American Committee against Terrorism (CICTE).
This event, which includes the participation of investigators and prosecutors from Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay, is being carried out in compliance with one of the recommendations adopted at the Seventh Meeting of the Working Group on Cybercrime of the REMJA process (Meetings of Ministers of Justice or Other Ministers or Attorneys General of the Americas), which was held at OAS headquarters in February, 2012.
The event participants will have the opportunity to obtain training in basic investigation techniques related to computer forensics, as well as technical and basic techniques related to the collection and maintenance of electronic evidence.
This event in Uruguay is part of a larger cooperative program sponsored by the U.S. Government, through its Department of Justice and the OAS General Secretariat, through the Department of Legal Cooperation, which has held over 18 similar regional and sub regional events related to other equally important matters in combating cybercrime.
