Overview

Combatting Cybercrime: Tools and Capacity Building for Emerging Economies.

The resources available here are aimed at building capacity among policy-makers, legislators, public prosecutors & investigators, and civil society in developing countries in the policy, legal and criminal justice aspects of the enabling environment to combat cybercrime. These resources include:

  • A Toolkit that synthesizes good international practice in combatting cybercrime
  • An Assessment Tool that enables countries to assess their current capacity to combat cybercrime and identify capacity-building priorities
  • A Virtual Library with materials provided by Project participating organizations and others
Download Using the Toolkit

Toolkit

The Toolkit is a resource that synthesizes good practices in combatting cybercrime and is organized along nine dimensions, or chapters, which are the same dimensions included in the Assessment Tool.

Cybercrime is continually evolving. The Toolkit captures information as of 2016 and will be periodically updated. The Toolkit, a reference resource on its own, also provides a broad contextual background to the Assessment Tool. The Toolkit and Assessment Tool should be read together.

Assessment Tool

The Assessment Tool – available here for downloading – is organized along the same nine dimensions as the Toolkit.

The Assessment Tool is also included with an explanatory chapter in the Toolkit. The purpose of the Assessment Tool is to enable a user to determine gaps in capacity and highlight priority areas to direct capacity-building resources. The first use of the Assessment Tool will provide a baseline. Periodic updating using the Assessment Tool will provide a basis to monitor progress. Use and results of the Assessment Tool are for the benefit of the user downloading it. Workflow remains solely with the user and there is no tracking, ranking or reporting back of results.

Virtual Library

This is a web-based and interactive platform of materials of partner organizations and other participants in the fight against cybercrime to share information, experience and expertise. The materials on the virtual library are all in the public domain
