In the framework of the EU-funded CyberSouth Project, a Sister Pilot Course on Open Source Investigations (based on European Cybercrime Training and Education Group in partnership with University College of Dublin –original version of the course can be found here) was delivered to law enforcement officers and magistrates from the MENA region on 17-21 June in Tunis, Tunisia. The goal of the training was to provide the participants with skills to perform investigations on the internet with enhanced knowledge in the relevant technologies.
During the training, the participants had the opportunity to learn how to use numerous free online resources that can aid in cybercrime investigations (search engines, social media) and also how to use it as digital evidence.
The training was delivered to 20 law enforcement and magistrates from Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya and Jordan.
CyberSouth is a joint project of the European Union and the Council of Europe. It contributes to the prevention and control of cybercrime and other offences involving electronic evidence in the region of the Southern Neighbourhood, in line with international human rights and rule of law standards and good practices.
