The Department of Justice-Office of Cybercrime (DOJ-OOC) conducted on 04-06 October 2022 a First Responders Course: Training of Trainers (FRCTot) to build the capacity of investigators on cyber incident response for stronger and more efficient criminal justice system.
The FRCToT aims to establish a cadre of trainers who will cascade their learnings and instruct their colleagues on how to preserve the integrity and value of electronic/digital evidence in all stages of the investigation process to establish air tight cases for the prosecution of cybercrime and cyber-related offenses.
The three-day training was actively participated in by 15 commissioned officers from the Philippine National Police (PNP) and three senior agents from the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), all from Region XI.
The training included sessions on the following: Sources of Electronic Evidence, Republic Act No. 10175 or the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, the Rule on Cybercrime Warrants, International Cooperation, Basic Open-Source Investigation Tools, Search and Seizure, and Training Skills.
At the end of the sessions, the attendees participated in a search and seizure simulation activity where they were required to implement a Warrant to Search, Seize, and Examine Computer Data. Each of the participants likewise delivered a short presentation to showcase their learnings from the lectures.
The event was graced by DOJ Assistant Secretary Jose Arturo R. Malvar who delivered the welcome remarks and PNP Regional Director PBGen Benjamin H. Silo, Jr. who gave a message of appreciation to the DOJ-OOC for conducting said event.
