All the station house officers (SHOs), incharges of women's cell and economic offences wing, and even the IPS officers attended a training session on cyber crime. The trainer was just a 19-year-old ethical hacker, Trishneet Arora, a Ludhiana resident.

Trishneet has already conducted training sessions for Gujarat Police, DSPs of Punjab and many entrepreneurs to teach them how to deal with cyber crime.

The training session, organised by Police Commissioner Paramjit Singh Gill, was focused on analysing and extracting information from smart phones, and verifying and identifying the source of IP addresses.

Trishneet said, "To catch cyber criminals, you just have to think like a criminal so as to reach the conclusion." He focused on email tracing, mobile tracing, email spoofing, IP tracing, website and email fraud tracking, social networking site issues, underground cyber criminal world, online cyber crime market, mobile forensics, top hacking groups, investigation of cyber crime, website defacing report, cyber laws, phishing frauds and ATM frauds.

Among the other issues discussed were day-to-day cases related to online cheating, cases of phishing, ATM, debit/credit card frauds, especially cases related to fake profiles of girls on Facebook to harass them.

The Police Commissioner said though the cyber law in India is effective, the police need to be trained adequately for these laws to be implemented.

Trishneet is the founder of TAC Security Solutions. He has written a book, "The Hacking Era". He is an Evangelist, Cyber Security, at TCIL-IT (A Govt of India Enterprises) (ICS Group, Chandigarh).
