Nasscom along with Haryana Police and Cybercity Welfare Society, a non-profit industry association, conducted its first introductory cyber security and crime detection training programme for Gurgaon police to train them against various numbers of cyber crimes. Let's see how the city police fights against crime over Internet when they are still not able to reduce the number of street crimes in the city.
THE HARYANA Police department is under pressure but is trying to seeks ways to cope with rising crime - both on the street as well in cyber world. In a new initiative it has decided to be better informed about cyber crime in order to fight criminals in the virtual world. The Times of India has reported the recent cyber security and crime detection training programme, which took place on June 19 and June 20, and about 60 policemen were given training at the introductory level. In this programme, training was given on various cyber crimes such as phases of the hacking cycle, ethical hacking, cyber crime, cyber forensics, identity theft and privacy, among others, reported TOI.
Joint Commissioner of Police Anil Kumar Rao has appreciated the training programme by Nasscom, and admitted that with the changing times police also has to be more evolved, and needs to learn more about technology with the increase in cyber crime.
No doubt that this is one of the good steps taken by Gurgaon Police though the larger challange of fighting crime on the street is still to be addressed aggressively as was seen while the Gurgaon police investigated in last month's BMW & Kshama Chopra's case. Perhaps the idea is to be more computer and net savvy to be better investigators while solving cases other than falling in the category of cyber crime. Hope this attempt at synergy works for Gurgaon police.
