BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – Law enforcement and government officials along 
with Information Technology specialists convened at the Royal St. Kitts 
Marriott Resort for a three-day conference which addressed Digital 
Investigations and Security in the region.

The discussions began on Tuesday, October 21 and drew participants from 
over 8 countries of the region and sensitised them on new approaches in 
identifying and investigating ‘cybercrime’ with the hope of reducing or 
eliminating its effects.

The programme was jointly organized by the Ministry of National 
Security, Immigration and Foreign Affairs in collaboration with the US 
Embassy and US Diplomatic Security Service, and gained technical support 
from the Office of Anti-terrorism Assistance.

Instructor of the Cyber Training Programme Michael Alcorn, who has over 
25 years experience dealing with cybercrime in the US State Department, 
explained that the programme was an overview on cyber-terrorism but also 
includes an overview of cybercrime in general.
