It will offer specialized professional training courses for 55 people – 20 specialists from POHCC, 20 specialists from DIICOT, 15 specialists from DNA, as follows:

  • 50 specialists will benefit from professional training in the area of computer searches (in topics such as „digital forensics” or malware analysis), respectively:
  • 20 specialists from POHCC, including from the prosecutor’s offices attached to the courts of appeal
  • 20 specialists from DIICOT – Central Structure and Territorial Services

We mention the following:

  • The 20 specialists within DIICOT (provided for professional training in information analysis) are the same as those provided for professional training in the area of computer searches. More specifically, the 20 DIICOT specialists will benefit from both forms of professional training (both for computer searches, and for the analysis of information resulting from computer searches). Therefore, the 20 DIICOT specialists can only be counted once in the composition of the target group, being the same people.
