National Policing Cybercrime Summit - Encore Presentation Series
December 3, 2015

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).

As a result of delegates' feedback regarding the high-impact messages shared by the Summit speakers/panels, and in response to recommendations generated from the Summit relating to the need for greater information sharing among subject matter experts, the CACP and CATAAlliance are pleased to offer an Encore Presentation Series of the Summit featuring many of the original speakers.
