Why an International Conference?

There has been a great increase in crimes involving information technologies worldwide and this trend is expected to remain for 2007. In an article recently published in The Washington Post article (Dec 22,2006), Brian Krebs writes that "Few Internet security watchers believe 2007 will be any brighter for the millions of fraud-weary consumers already struggling to stay abreast of new computer security threats and avoiding clever scams when banking, shopping or just surfing online."

In a global and virtual environment like this, in which the Internet has no borders, cyber-crime legislation is still emerging and organized cyber-crime gangs are getting more and more ingenious and creative, there is a need to promote international cooperation aimed at the exchange of experiences, ideas, expertise and knowledge on new cyber-crime techniques, methods and processes.

The idea of organizing an International Conference on Cyber Crime Investigation (ICCyber) was generated from the need of the Forensic Computer Crime Unit of the Brazilian Federal Police to discuss with other international law enforcement agencies technical, scientific and judicial questions related to the increasing complexity, incidence and rapidly changing nature of cybercrimes. In September 2004 the First ICCyber was held in Brasília, Brazil, with more than 600 participants from 21 countries. The subsequent second and third conferences were held in December 2005 and November 2006, respectively.

 

Conference Goals

ICCyber has become an international forum for law enforcement, computer forensic practitioners and scientists from around the world to present their latest research findings in all aspects related do Cyber Crime and Forensic Computer Science. In addition to technical sessions in which submitted paper are presented, the meeting offers workshops, and training, as well as commercial presentations & exhibits.

The “Fourth International Conference on Cyber Crime Investigation (ICCyber2007)” will be focused on presenting and discussing new techniques, tools, research and developments aimed at investigating and combating cyber crime. The event also has the following objectives:

  • To promote strategic cooperation and support the exchange of experiences/expertise among law enforcement agencies, academia and practitioners from around the world
