Speaking on the occasion, Ashwani Kumar, director of CBI said, “With the advent of technology, the investigation profession is seeing new approaches, solutions and techniques for solving specific and generic problems. Security in organizations has undergone changes; its structure continues to evolve, but it is even more visible in an organization and its responsibilities continue to expand. This MoU will direct, guide, and help the law enforcement agencies to fight the growing threat of cyber crime. The CBI Academy, Ghaziabad will cater to the need of the training requirement of the CBI Officers, State Police Officers, PSUs as well as the Police officers of foreign countries, especially SAARC countries.”

Speaking on the occasion, Som Mittal, president of Nasscom said the industry body will ensure the CBI has access to the top experts in the industry whenever required.

The CHCIT instructors, along with instructors from Nasscom-DSCI, will also train officers from various law enforcement agencies across the country including the state police, CPOs etc. The CHCIT at CBI Academy will be used for training purposes for all the above mentioned officers. A Nasscom-DSCI core team would also assist in the designing of the various courses on cyber crimes as well as in conducting hands-on training to the trainees at the CBI Academy.
