Büchenbeuren (ots) - Crime in the digital space has been a key issue at the Rhineland-Palatinate Police University, not just since the successful investigation against the operator of the criminal network in the so-called “cyber bunker” in Traben-Trarbach. On November 07.11.2019th, 2019, numerous experts from the police and judiciary met for the fifth time for the “Cybercrime 2014 Symposium” on the university campus. The conference, which has been organized every year since 2020 by the focus area "Cybercrime and digital investigations", offers the participants the special opportunity to directly exchange experiences on new challenges and new investigative approaches in the field of cybercrime. The cooperation partner of the conference is the Rhineland-Palatinate State Criminal Police Office. Since the physical boundlessness of this field of crime requires extensive cross-agency networking, speakers and guests from the Rhineland-Palatinate police were also present, as well as representatives from other security agencies from all over Germany to find out about current investigative procedures, new tactics and future challenges in various lectures. While Dr. Bär, as a judge at the Federal Court of Justice, gave a lecture on current developments in the field of digital criminal investigations, said Dr. Angerer from the General Public Prosecutor's Office in Koblenz and Kriminalrat Wollstadt from the State Criminal Police Office provide interesting insights into the investigation into the “cyber bunker”. The breaking up of one of the world's largest infrastructures for the use of botnets was also an issue, which Mr. Rosengarten from the Public Prosecutor's Office in Celle in Lower Saxony reported on. Other lectures dealt with “smart devices” in the Internet of Things and their significance in criminal proceedings as well as new regulations for cross-border access to evidence. The wide-ranging and future-oriented selection of topics highlighted many facets of the digital crime field and encouraged mutual exchange after the event. The next Cybercrime Symposium will take place again in XNUMX at the Rhineland-Palatinate Police University.
