Women and cyber – capacity building for law enforcement forces with gender perspectives in Argentina

Project Profile

The Technical Assistance Partnership (TAP) initiative works collaboratively with Argentina’s Ministry of Security Cybercrime Investigations Directorate to strengthen the country’s capacity to investigate cybercrime, particularly in areas where women and girls are most vulnerable. The initiative aims to generate better inclusion of a gender perspective in the work of law enforcement officials in cybercrime as part of the Strengthening Cybersecurity and Cybercrime Investigation (ForCIC) program.

A Canadian expert on cybercrime and online child sexual exploitation will work collaboratively with Cybercrime Investigations Directorate to review essential country documentation on online child sexual exploitation to identify challenges, gaps, and opportunities to strengthen existing practices, procedures, tools, and coordination mechanisms within the Directorate for the detection, investigation, and prosecution of these crimes.

The work includes comprehensive training on strategies and tools to address these gaps focused on online child sexual exploitation cases. The training targets the Federal Police and Security Forces staff and specialized prosecutors in the field, who will be invited through the Public Prosecutor’s Office to share best practices.
