European Cybercrime Training & Education Group (ECTEG)

UCD CCI has helped to develop training materials and and piloted several ECTEG courses; most recently the design, development and pilot delivery of a 12-month blended learning course for online investigators. ECTEG training packs are freely available to the law enforcement community via ECTEG.


Online Education

CCI led the early development of UCD’s long-running and highly-regarded education programme in Forensic Computing & Cybercrime Investigation. This came out of its contacts and relationships in Irish and European law enforcement agencies. To date, over 1200 law enforcement personnel from 70 countries have participated. Graduates include officers of regional, city and national policing organizations, defense forces, military police, government agencies and ministries, central banks and regulatory organisations, customs and border protection, as well as Interpol, UN, Europol and OSCE personnel. This programme is delivered by distance learning for law enforcement worldwide and offers Masters (MSc), Graduate Diploma, Graduate Certificate and CPD options. Research Masters and PhD study in this field is also an option.
