Union Minister for Home Affairs, Amit Shah, on Friday, inaugurated the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (I4C) and also dedicated National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal to the Nation. This state-of-the-art Centre is located in New Delhi.

The project to setup I4C was approved in October 2018 at an estimated cost of Rs. 415.86 crore, to deal with all types of cybercrimes in a comprehensive and coordinated manner.

It has seven components viz., National Cyber Crime Threat Analytics Unit, National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal, National Cyber Crime Training Centre, Cyber Crime Ecosystem Management Unit, National Cyber Crime Research and Innovation Centre, National Cyber Crime Forensic Laboratory Ecosystem and Platform for Joint Cyber Crime Investigation Team.

Fifteen States and UTs have given their consent to the Union MHA’s initiative of setting up Regional Cyber Crime Coordination Centres at respective States/UTs.

National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal (www.cybercrime.gov.in) is a citizen-centric initiative that will enable citizens to report cyber crimes online through the portal. All the cyber crime related complaints will be accessed by the concerned law enforcement agencies in the States and Union Territories for taking action as per law. This portal enables filing of all cyber crimes with specific focus on crimes against women, children, particularly child pornography, child sex abuse material, online content pertaining to rapes/gang rapes, etc.

So far, more than 700 police districts and more than 3,900 police stations have been connected with this Portal. After successful completion, this portal can improve the capacity of the law enforcement agencies to investigate the cases and will improve success in prosecution. This portal also focuses on specific crimes like financial crime and social media related crimes like stalking, cyber bullying, etc.  This portal will improve coordination amongst the law enforcement agencies of different States, districts and police stations for dealing with cyber crimes in a coordinated and effective manner. MHA is committed to provide and create an eco system for dealing with the cyber crimes in a comprehensive & coordinated manner.

In future, this portal will provide for chatbot for automated interactive assistance system to the public for guidance on cybercrime prevention and how to report incidents on the portal.

CBI Director: Cyber crime big challenge to investigation agencies

New Delhi: CBI Director Rishi Kumar Shukla inaugurated the first two-day National Conference on Cyber Crime Investigation and Cyber Forensics at CBI headquarters in New Delhi to discuss mandates of CBI to investigate crimes with inter-state and international ramifications.

 

The CBI director said that conference was aimed at bringing together investigators, lawyers, forensic experts and academia to discuss challenges related to cyber crime and to find solutions. It is a platform to share good practices to learn from experiences of state police and Law Enforcement Agencies. He emphasized that digitisation has improved quality of citizen services and so has increased vulnerability.

 

Shukla emphasized upon making concerted efforts for capacity building and creation of a pool of competent investigators, digital forensic analysts, prosecutors and judicial officers who are digitally aware. Cyber crimes are posing unique challenges to law enforcement officers and they are complex and require certain skills for detection. He noted that these crimes are truly borderless and, therefore, theories of traditional jurisdiction come under challenge while investigations are in progress. There is an urgent need for law enforcement agencies to equip themselves to fight these cyber criminals effectively and expeditiously in a coordinated manner.

 

He highlighted the dichotomous situation where CBI is unable to fulfill its mandate in investigating interstate crimes due to absence of consent of some State governments. India stands at the cusp of a digital revolution, law enforcement officers should focus on basics that will help keep cyber crimes under check and take effective deterrent action.

Home Secretary inaugurated 6th ILO Conference- 2019 at CBI Hqrs

By IndianMandarins 20 Jun 2019

The Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba on Thursday inaugurated the two day, 6th Interpol Liaison Officers Conference at CBI (HQ) in New Delhi. It is being organised by CBI which is the National Central Bureau (NCB) of India and represents India in the Interpol.

 

ILO conferences are being organised by the IPCU of CBI since 2003. Five Conferences have been organised so far. Around 37 Interpol Liaison Officers (ILOs), including ADGPs, IGPs, Joint CPs, Directors, Additional Directors, Joint Directors, DIGs and SPs from states, Union Territories and other law enforcement agencies are attending the conference.

 

During his address Gauba underlined that while the term “Globalization” is normally used in the context of economics – trade liberalisation and foreign investments crime has also become globalised and therefore law enforcement agencies were required to constantly update their knowledge about the functioning of the Interpol and its data-bases and how to use them effectively. He added that the digital revolution has equipped criminals to move funds across borders making it a dangerous confluence of financial globalisation.

 

He further emphasized that in the midst of the digital revolution, law enforcement agencies have realised that they cannot operate in silos. In the scenario of seamless internet and easy mobility, there is an urgent need for real time sharing of information and greater mutual coordination amongst law enforcement agencies, in order to optimize their responses.

 

Gauba also observed that during its 53 years as the designated National Central Bureau of India, the CBI being the window of Interpol to Indian agencies has acquired considerable domain expertise in use of Interpol tools and database.

 

CBI being the National Central Bureau-India (International Police Cooperation Unit) is coordinating with Indian law enforcement agencies and assisting them in matters of International Police Cooperation. For coordinating with state law enforcement agencies, Interpol Liaison Officers (ILOs) have been designated as contact points.

 

The two day Interpol Liaison Officers Conference will discuss extradition; Interpol's Operational Databases-Data management and search tools and Interpol Notices System including RPD/Red Notice.

 

CBI Director Rishi Kumar Shukla said that the aim of the conference is to familiarise and update Interpol Liaison Officers about the functioning and capabilities of the Interpol and a platform to share experiences.
