Interacting with Victims

Data Privacy & Confidentiality are non-negotiable.

Follow these guidelines while interacting with victims of Cyber Crime

Be non-judgemental

Always remember that the victim in most cases will not be as tech savvy as you are and that could be the reason they became a victim of Cybercrime. Please do not judge them based on their lack of technological knowhow and in no case should you comment or criticise their actions.

Be Supportive

Even though it may not sound like a big deal, but the person has been a victim of crime which resulted in loss of information or monetary loss. Hence, be empathetic when dealing with such people.

Never break trust

When you are working on a case, you will come across sensitive information which the victim might share with you in order to help solve the case. Hence, it is essential that you keep it confidential which in turn will mean greater trust between you and the victim. Never share this information outside and always remember your Code of Conduct.

Listen

Now this may sound simple, but sometimes we find it hard to believe that someone can do such silly acts on the internet. Well guess what, they do. As we said before, people are still novice on the web and might have fallen prey to a technique which might look very silly to you. So, try to listen and believe what the victim is saying and try to look at it from their perspective.

Be Respectful

This is again something we mentioned before but we cannot say it enough that the victim needs to be comfortable working with you. If he/she does not trust you and think you are making fun of them, they might back out altogether. It is never hard to accept a silly mistake. So always be respectful while interacting with them in person or via any other means.

Interacting with Members

Follow these guidelines while interacting with members of CopConnect

Interacting with LEA

Whenever you are interacting with the officer/personnel concerned with the case, please try to remember these points:

  • If the assistance requires any document/evidence, always communicate via email or other written modes for proof purposes
  • Always identify the contact personnel for the case and do not interact with another Police officer regarding a case they are not a part of
  • All documents collected from the Contact person should be collated and submitted to ISAC for filing purposes. This will protect you if any legal complexities were to arise.
  • You can file a log with ISAC about a physical meeting with a Law Enforcement personnel if you think the matter is too sensitive and should be brought to our notice.
  • Please do not get involved in personal matters and always remember that you are solving a case and not trading personal favours

Interacting with Experts

Whenever you feel a need to seek assistance from fellow security professionals, please keep the following things in mind:

  • Provide a brief description of the case and share information on a need to basis.
  • It will be your decision whether to include the name of the other person in your final report or not
  • You can also share/not share the details of assistance from your fellow hacker to the contact person in the Law Enforcement
  • In any case, the Code of Conduct must be followed by any person working/assisting on any case
  • Please provide the name and assistance provided to ISAC for internal purposes for every case you work on. This process ensures your credit due is always given to you.
