Delhi Cops Teach How To Fight Cyber Crime

NEW DELHI: Delhi Police has donned the mantle of teacher without a cane. In its bid to reach out to people with information about threats of the virtual world, the department's cyber cell will teach students at graduate and postgraduate levels a two-week course on cyber crime, security and forensics, inspired by the success of its first batch of 12 from Sardar Patel University of Police, Security and Criminal Justice, Jodhpur. This batch was inducted on June 16. 
"Students from all over India can apply and our officers will shortlist batches as per our infrastructure and constraints. Those pursuing courses in computer applications, forensics and cyber security are eligible," Satish Golcha, joint commissioner of police, Economic Offences Wing, said. 
The current batch was explained what crimes like hacking, data theft, crimes of persuasion, credit card, e-banking frauds, extortion, stalking and fake profiling are and how police dealt with them. In the course of the training, senior investigating officers will share their experiences while handling a case. 
"We will hold a special session to acquaint students with Trojans, virus, malwares, spywares, Keylogger software and steganography," DCP (EOW) S D Mishra said. "Students learned how to make disk-to-disk images of hard disks, optical drives and pen drives as well as copy information on various mobile phones using Logicube Forensic Dossier, Logicube Talon and FREDDIE. Details about extraction of deleted data and analysis of the imaged data were also taught," DCP (EOW) Mangesh Kashyap said. 
Students will now be given extensive training on various aspects of cyber forensic analysis using software tools available in the lab such as Access Data Toolkit, Encase and NUIX. They even had a practical session on tracking website hackers. The batch was taken on a field trip to National Informatics Centre from where all government websites are hosted. 
"They were told about the features of Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems, Delhi Police Dossier System, Delhi Police ZIPNET, Delhi Police PCR control room and Delhi Police fingerprint system through interactive sessions at the CCTNS Training Centre," Golcha said.
