Cybercrime training for police

We combine e-learning, workshops and exercises to help police keep pace with cybercrime trends.

Police must keep pace with technological developments and have the required expertise and skills to deal with evolving digital crime at the national, regional and international levels.

We provide a range of training courses and styles targeted to the needs of participants. Online e-learning modules, classroom-based sessions and workshops provide traditional educational opportunities, while hands-on exercises offer practical simulations of real-life scenarios.

Digital Security Challenge

Our Digital Security Challenge tests cyber investigators’ skills in a simulated operation. It’s a race against the clock, with participants given strict time limits to solve a complex cybercrime scenario and gather enough evidence for a successful prosecution. INTERPOL experts, cybercrime investigators from our member countries and specialists from the private sector are on hand to give advice and mentor investigators.

The 2018 edition of the INTERPOL Digital Security Challenge brought together 43 cybercrime investigators and digital forensics experts from 23 countries to investigate a simulated cyberattack using an IoT device.
