Adli Wahid represented APNIC at the 2nd Interpol Europol Cybercrime Conference, held recently in Singapore from 1-3 October 2014.
Under the theme “Cybercrime Investigations: The Full Cycle”, the three-day event brought together representatives from law enforcement, the private sector, and academia to discuss the latest techniques used in investigating online crime.
The Conference was structured around:
- Prevention and detection
- Investigation techniques, search and seizure, and forensics
- Prosecution and trial
Attended by more than 250 participants from around the world, the event also presented an opportunity for Adli to meet with Law Enforcement Agency (LEA) representatives from the Asia Pacific region including Singapore, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Japan, and Korea.
The presentations included legal and technical challenges in cybercrime investigations, case studies, training initiatives and tools for investigations.
The event coincided with the opening of the Interpol Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI), a facility focused on research and development, training, operational support and partnerships to improve the effectiveness of law enforcement. APNIC is excited to have the IGCI in the region and looks forward to contributing relevant expertise in the future. Adli met with Dr Madan Oberoi, the Director of Cyber Innovation and Outreach at the IGCI, on the possibility of future collaboration and training in 2015.
