Call the shots! Let’s fight crime together

Friday 4 October 11:00 - 12:30, Small talks

Speaker TBA (NHTCU)

The National High Tech Crime Unit (NHTCU) is part of the Dutch National Police, focusing on cybercrime cases related to the Netherlands that are considered high impact and/or complex due to the suspects or victims involved or the infrastructure used.

In this session we aim first to present some insights into how specific details are hidden in malware, and how other tips from malware researchers in the private sector have led to arrests in the past. During the walkthrough there will be key moments where the audience will be asked to share their opinions, ideas and/or thoughts with the NHTCU investigators on stage.

Then, we aim to get even more interactive and to discuss ideas as to how malware researchers and cybersecurity experts can help the NHTCU even more in existing and even new cases. This might involve some technical as well as legal frameworks.

The ultimate goal of the session is to come up with one (or more) specific ideas or cases that we can work on collaborately in the months that follow, maybe even leading to arrests. Delegates are asked to think beforehand as to how their general intelligence position or technical skills could be utlised in criminal investigations. Your insights into specific cybercriminal groups, specific modus operandi or crucial facilitators within the cybercrime ecosystem will be crucial in order to turn this project into a success.
