Cybercrimes Insight and Introduction to Digital Evidence Identification is coming to the Criminal Justice Institute in Little Rock on October 11.

This one-day training is designed to introduce law enforcement officers, with limited or no prior knowledge of computer crime and cyber investigations, to the importance of identifying evidence related to suspected criminal activity.

Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of computer networks and internet technologies. Students will learn how to identify hardware, software and other digital devices that often contain evidence used in criminal investigations.

The focus will be on making students aware of how to recognize that a cybercrime has occurred, and who to contact about gathering evidence.

This class is FREE OF CHARGE to law enforcement and other first responders. For more information, contact Jimmy Nobles at 501-570-8058.

This training is part of the Cybersecurity Defense Initiative (CDI), a FREE national cybersecurity training program developed for technical personnel and managers who monitor and protect our nation’s critical cyber infrastructures. Classes are held each year in locations throughout the United States. CDI offers training that prepares technical personnel to prevent or reduce the risk for a cyber breach of networks or other critical information systems, and effectively respond to or recover from a cyber-based attack.

This training is provided through the National Cybersecurity Preparedness Consortium (NCPC). The NCPC has been established through the partnership and collaboration of five university centers committed to providing research-based, cybersecurity-related training, exercises, and technical assistance to local jurisdictions, counties, states, and the private sector throughout the U.S. NCPC members include:
The University of Arkansas System’s Criminal Justice Institute
The Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security (CIAS) at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA)
The Texas Engineering Extension Service in the Texas A & M University System
The University of Memphis
Norwich University Applied Research Institutes

Each NCPC member has an established cybersecurity training program. As partners, members share resources and work together to eliminate duplication of effort in developing courses and providing training for the whole community. Visit us online at
