On 16 & 17 May 2019, CEIS hosted and organised a training on Malware Forensics and Information Sharing in the premises of Bluecyforce in Paris. 19 European law enforcement officers stemming from 7 Member States attended this event. CEPOL, the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Training, was represented as well. This training is one of the first activities of the European ENFORCE project.
The aim of this workshop was to train law enforcement officers through practical hands-on sessions and investigation case studies. The workshop focused on malware detection and analysis. Using a realistic malware-infection scenario and a VM-based environment, trainees were able to improve their ability and techniques to investigate a compromised machine and share information using the Open Source MISP threat intelligence platform.
About the ENFORCE project
ENFORCE is an 18-month European project co-funded by the European Commission in the framework of the Internal Security Fund – Police. The project runs from December 2018 to May 2020. The ENFORCE project aims at designing, setting-up, and disseminating a cybercrime training curriculum at the European level. This curriculum will be validated during a training exercise allowing different European public (e.g. law enforcement agencies and CSIRTs) and private actors fighting cybercrime to train together using state-of-the-art training technology.
