CARIBBEAN STATES TO BE TRAINED AGAINST CYBER CRIME
From August 22 to 24, 2012, a regional training workshop will take place in Miami, on cybercrime legislation and cyber security frameworks and policies. This event has been organized jointly by the Department of Justice of the United State 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).
The event is directed to the English-speaking Caribbean, and is being carried out in compliance with one of the recommendations adopted in February 2012 by the Working Group on Cybercrime of the REMJA process (Meetings of Ministers of Justice or Other Ministers or Attorneys General of the Americas), in the framework of its Seventh Meeting. The principal objective of the event is to train investigators and prosecutors from the region with regard to international cybercrime standards and conventions, investigation techniques related to international cooperation in the fight against cyber crime, and the drafting of effective cyber-crime legislation.
This event in Miami marks the 19th such event held at the regional/sub regional level and 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, since 2004.
