More than 5,000 police personnel in the State will undergo training in investigating cyber crime at the newly upgraded Centre for Cyber Crime Investigation Training and Research (CCITR) at the CID headquarters in Bengaluru.
Funded by the Infosys Foundation, it will be a resource centre for digital forensics, forensic investigation support, malware research, legal and policy research, said officials.
The centre was inaugurated on Thursday by Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy. In addition to training police personnel, the centre will be open to students from various institutes who can undergo training in the detection of cyber crime.
