Microsoft Bangladesh on Sunday organised a daylong training session for law enforcers and public sector officials on cybercrime fighting tactics under its Security Cooperation Programme introduced in Bangladesh last year. The session was organised at Hotel Radisson in Dhaka where security advisers and consultants of Microsoft’s law enforcement support team focused on forensic applications that can help law enforcers in extracting evidences and investigating cybercrimes.

Various issues such as types of cybercrimes, hard disk analysis process, digital signatures, encryptions, documenting cases and forensic tool kits came up for discussion at the programme, styled ‘Cybercrime Foundations and best Practices’. IB Terry, III, Microsoft’s consultant for Law Enforcement Support Team, discussed applications that can help acquire forensic evidences of crimes and identify criminals. He presented the technical analysis while investigating a cybercrime.

The primary way to fight a cybercrime is to educate the law enforcement agencies and the individuals on the processes and techniques for detecting and investigating a cybercrime, Eric White, services executive of Microsoft Corporation told this correspondent. The SCP is a programme which seeks the help of Microsoft technology and its services in ensuring secure computing environments. Under SCP, Microsoft works in cooperation with government agencies, exchanging information that can be used to better anticipate, help prevent and mitigate the effects of security attacks technologically.

The training session was attended by Jeff Paine, regional government engagement programme manager for the Asia Pacific, Microsoft Bangladesh country manager Feroz Mahmud and its public sector manager KM Imran Al-Amin.
