Security vendor McAfee will give grants to a European and a U.S. organization to better train law enforcement and legal officials in dealing with cybercrime.

Security vendor McAfee will give grants to a European and a U.S. organization to better train law enforcement and legal officials to deal with cybercrime.

McAfee will give US$55,000 to the Council of Europe, an organization created in 1949 and composed of 47 countries that works on issues such as human rights and others, including cybercrime.

The council also runs a global project that's working to marshal support for the Convention on Cybercrime, the only international treaty dealing with computer crime, in addition to educations efforts. The convention was adopted in 2001, and 47 countries have signed it.

McAfee will also give the same amount to the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA), a professional organization for U.S. prosecutors. The funds will be used to offer an electronic training course for law enforcement, prosecutors and judges.

McAfee's announcement comes as around 300 legal professionals, security experts and government officials are meeting in Strasbourg, France, on Tuesday and Wednesday for the International Conference on Cybercrime.

One of the main thrusts of the conference is to foster better cooperation between law enforcement and legal officials. Cybercriminals have flourished in recent years, capitalizing on weak links between different countries in investigating and prosecuting offenders.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
