The Philippine Department of Justice – Office of Cybercrime (DOJ-OOC), in partnership with the Global Action on Cybercrime Extended (GLACY+) Project, is set to conduct the first leg of “Introductory Training of Trainers (ToT) Course on Cybercrime and Electronic Evidence” for the ASEAN Region on 20-23 March 2018 in Manila, Philippines.

The training aims to empower countries to develop and sustain their respective training programs by establishing  a group of trainers who will be able to cascade basic knowledge and skill sets necessary for prosecutors, judges, and magistrates in handling cybercrime and cyber-related cases in the ASEAN Region.

A composite team of international experts, prosecution and judicial authorities from the Philippines will share their knowledge and expertise with some 40 representatives from the judicial and prosecution services of Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, and Thailand.

Philippines is a priority and hub country for capacity building under the Global Action on Cybercrime Extended (GLACY+) of the Council of Europe, and is considered an exponent of regional best practice in strengthening the response of criminal justice authorities to address the growing threats and challenges of cybercrime and electronic evidence, in line with international standards.
