The Organization of American States (OAS), Interpol and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), are again organizing a closed training for law enforcement agencies from Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America. It will take place from 22 to 24 June, right before the ICANN62 meeting in Panama. Among other topics, the training will cover strategies, techniques and tools used by threat researchers to identify and investigate different forms of abuse of the Domain Name System (DNS).

The Spanish National Cybersecurity Institute (INCIBE) will share its experience in enhancing collaboration and cooperation with law enforcement, focusing on tools and methods. Other speakers will include, among others, The Shadowserver Foundation, Crowdstrike, Inc. and the Secure Domain Foundation, that will provide their own perspective regarding collaboration, as well as threat identification, mitigation, containment and attribution. Additional topics that will be covered will include malware analysis, blockchain technologies from an investigative point of view, and conducting research via Tor.

This training is a continuation of the ongoing collaborative efforts between the OAS, Interpol, INCIBE and ICANN. For several years, they have successfully helped create investigative capacities in Spain, Latin America and the Caribbean by sharing knowledge, increasing trust and enhancing collaboration.
