HDFC Bank organized a training program for cybercrime first responders in the Bangalore police force. The program offers to update the skillsets of law enforcement authorities and enhance their ability to tackle cyber related economic offences. The training is part of HDFC Bank’s larger Secure Banking Initiative, aimed at engaging with all its key stakeholders to improve banking security across different channels. The 2-day training program, created by the bank for police and other law enforcement authorities in partnership with Mahindra SSG, gives the latest updates on controlling this menace. The course covers various aspects of investigating cybercrime such as how to identify and deal with skimming scams, vishing, phishing, data counterfeiting, SIM duplication and email threats among others. Close to 100 police officers are expected to attend the course in Bangalore. Speaking at the function, Vishal Salvi, CISO, HDFC Bank, said the endeavour of the programme is to partner with law enforcement authorities and equip them with appropriate skillsets to tackle cybercrime with the help of real-life examples and case studies. The first such program was launched in New Delhi in April with 50-55 police officers undergoing the training.
