Today’s panel discussion will feature Norton Cybersecurity Institute partners that form the backbone of the fight against cybercrime. On the discussion agenda are the biggest challenges facing law enforcement, emerging threats such as mobile and other technologies, and how international law enforcement can keep up with an ever-developing criminal environment. Panelists at the event include:
As Lead Cybersecurity Advisor at Norton, Adam Palmer plays a leading role in the Norton Cybersecurity Institute. A former U.S. Navy JAG prosecutor, Palmer also served as an instructor in cybercrime prosecution courses for the National District Attorney’s Association (NDAA), the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG), and the National Law Center for Children (NLC). Palmer taught the first Internet Crimes Against Children course at law school level through the University of Mississippi Law School.
“Cybercrime is a global epidemic that can’t be solved by one company or law enforcement agency alone; keeping the Internet safe is a shared responsibility,” said Adam Palmer, Norton lead cybersecurity advisor. “Through training and global collaboration, the Norton Cybersecurity Institute will help law enforcement in their efforts to catch and prosecute cybercriminals successfully.”
“There is a real lack of cybercrime education for judges, law enforcement and prosecutorial staff in the U.S,” added Thomas Clancy, director of the National Center for Justice and the Rule of Law. “Prosecutors, investigators and judges are on the front lines every day. They need access to the very latest information, effective knowledge sharing and international best practices to do their jobs and keep the Internet safe for everyone. The National Center of Justice and the Rule of Law is proud to be part of this leading cross-industry initiative to fight cybercrime.”
Starting in 2011, the Norton Cybersecurity Institute plans to begin rolling out a number of programs and resources to assist law enforcement in the fight against cybercrime and to support consumers who have been victims of cybercriminals, including:
