We conducted a cybercrime investigation training for Pimpri Chinchwad Police (PCMC), specifically on OSINT, on February 15th, 2024. This was supported by SBI Foundation.


We trained the PCMC Police on cybercrime investigation on February 15th, 2024 at the Police Headquarters. Big thanks to Commissioner of Police Vinay Choubey Sir, DCP Crime Sandeep Doipode Sir & ACP Vinay Muglikar Sir for the encouragement and great attendance at the training.


Encouraging to have Assistant Commissioner Sir & Cyber Cell officers enthusiastically  participate in the workshop. Demonstrates openness of Indian Police to proactively track and deploy new tools available in investigation of cybercrimes.


We are glad that the Foundation of our country’s largest bank (SBI) that serves over one fourth of banking population of India all by itself believes that cyber security is a critical topic for one and all, especially for banks, customers.


We received pertinent questions during the training that we were happy to answer. Follow up trainings were requested which we will conduct soon.


Hope to continue this knowledge partnership as we have been doing for last 7 years, glad to share our expertise as part of serving the nation via the law enforcement.


Stay Aware, Stay Safe


Jai Hind, Jai Bharat!
