New Delhi, March 25 (IANS) With cyber crime becoming a global phenomenon and the Internet blurrring international boundaries, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is organising a daylong conference on cyber crime along with the Council of Europe Thursday to discuss new international systems for better cooperation among countries.
International Police Cooperation against Cyber Crime is being organised to enhance the knowledge of law enforcement agencies and other stakeholders to combat cyber crimes.

“With cyber crime becoming a global phenomenon, it is imperative for the law enforcement agencies to understand its complexity and upgrade skills and knowledge to meet this new challenge,” a CBI statement said.

“Due to all pervasiveness of the Internet and blurring of international boundaries, law enforcement agencies find it extremely difficult to combat cyber crime due to their jurisdictional limitations. International cooperation amongst countries is governed mainly by the legal provisions, which in most of the cases, are not fast enough to match the pace of cyber criminals.”

Senior police officers from all the states, union territories, other law enforcement agencies, forensic labs, research organisations, Internet service providers and other stakeholders will participate in the conference.

The agenda of the conference includes discussion on cyber crime threats and trends, international cooperation against cyber crime, good practices and opportunities for India and law enforcement-service provider cooperation in the investigation of cyber crime.

The statement further said: “In addition to having a second look at the existing mechanisms, we must develop some new systems and procedures for better cooperation during investigation and prosecution.”
