On October 19 & 20, 2015, the inaugural National Policing Cybercrime Summit was held in Toronto and featured over two dozen law enforcement, government, and industry speakers and attended by over 100 delegates. The Summit was hosted by founding partner organizations the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) and the Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance (CATAAlliance).
Based on the information shared by speakers, panels and through a town hall and post-assessment survey, the following seven key recommendations emerged as presented in the comprehensive summary report Canadian Law Enforcement Cybercrime Priorities and Needs1: 1) Collaboration and Information Sharing; 2) Apply Needed Resources and Training; 3) Education; 4) Original Research; 5) Advance Advocacy and Policy Needs; 6) Identify Champions; and, 7) Critical infrastructure Protection & Investments.
In response to these findings, CATAAlliance and the CACP recently launched the eCrime Cyber Council (ECC). The ECC is comprised of police experts, innovative private sector leaders, academic and government observers to work with government departments, ministries, and agencies at federal, provincial, and local levels to undertake supportive policies and approaches that will make Canada a world leader in addressing the threat and harm of cybercrime.

The ECC is responsible for assisting in the advancement of Canada’s National Cybercrime Strategy, which is based on five key pillars: 1) Mainstream; 2) Deter; 3) Collaborate; 4) Enhance; and 5) Advocate. As defined in the RCMP whitepaper on the cybercrime strategy, titled Next Steps: We can all do more2, the ECC has identified key strategies it is adopting to help advance and address these critical national needs. The delivery of an annual International Cybercrime Summit is one of those key priorities and further seen as a unique platform to showcase Canadian police leadership and leading-edge innovation to a global stage.
Towards these ends, the entire ECC is dedicated to developing an agenda that will: resonate with law enforcement executives and those on the front lines; showcase national and global policing cybercrime capabilities; highlight the newest and latest innovations, tools and practices in identifying, collecting and management of digital data of evidentiary value; and, educate and inform the entire assembly on the nature, prevalence, and impacts of cybercrime on police and society as a whole.
