UL, a safety science organization, announced during the 9th International Law Enforcement IP Crime Conference * that its newest offering of an advanced investigations course will more effectively combat criminal activity.
The course, offered through the International Intellectual Property Crime Investigators College (IIPCIC), will help law enforcement officials better understand consequences of digital piracy, how to commence an online criminal investigation and how online channels may be exploited by criminals. The training was launched Sept. 16, 2015.
Keith Williams, president and CEO of UL, will open the conference focusing on the seriousness of intellectual property theft.
