Our Security Consultant Sarka Pekarova has been invited to participate as a speaker at the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime's (UNODC) Regional Darknet Training: Intelligence Collection for Law Enforcement. The training, which is part of the "Southeast Asia State of the Darknet Report and Action" project funded by the Government of Japan, is part of UNODC’s broader support to UN member states in enhancing their capability to identify, investigate and pursue both cyber-criminals and terrorism-related crime in the cyberspace, particularly on the darknet. Sarka’s presentation will address the critical need for understanding deception techniques and will focus on providing social engineering skills to law enforcement cyber-affiliated government personnel responsible for investigations.
"People usually don’t think about social engineering. For officers investigating online cybercrime, child sexual exploitation, drugs, firearms and terrorism, these skills are essential for their safety and security as well as to successfully lead investigations. I will focus on explaining how social engineering and deception techniques are used to manipulate targets and which red flags to keep an eye out on to ensure their safety", said Sarka.
