September 8-9, 2008 | Arlington, VA
The NGA Center hosted an Executive Policy Forum on Cyber and Electronic Crime with support from the National Institute of Justice.
During the forum more than 60 senior-level policy makers, executives from the private sector, and federal representatives were educated about emerging and existing cyber and electronic threats and methods for addressing them. The forum was led by a faculty of industry experts, successful state practitioners, and academics, who provided detailed suggestions for addressing issues such as child exploitation; identity theft; youth electronic crimes; and victim remediation. Other sessions focused on policies for teaching prevention, protecting states' electronic assets, and reducing electronic evidence backlogs.
