     The three-day International Symposium on Cyber Policing successfully concluded today (September 15). Over 100 senior leaders of law enforcement agencies (LEAs) from 39 jurisdictions; as well as academia and experts in the fields of communication, finance, innovation technology and cyber security across the globe gathered in Hong Kong during the past three days to have in-depth discussions on a wide spectrum of issues on cyber policing.   

     The three-day event comprised five sessions of keynote speech and three sessions of panel discussion. A wide range of topics were covered, including the changing social media behaviors and regulatory approaches of different jurisdictions, the development of advanced technology and their implications on policing, the development of artificial intelligence (AI) infrastructure and technology in smart city and smart policing as well as national strategies in safeguarding cyber security etc.  

     The symposium not only provided a platform for speakers and delegates to share views on the latest development of technology and the associated implications on policing, it also fostered international and multidisciplinary collaborations.

     The Commissioner of Police, Mr Siu Chak-yee, said in the closing ceremony, “this symposium has afforded a new and ideal platform for establishing network and building trust among law enforcement agencies, and many of our supportive working partners and stakeholders such as the banking and communication industries who share the common vision with us.”  

     He also reiterated that the public-private partnership, at both local and international context, is vital in tackling the global issue of emerging cyber threats. “Looking ahead, our aspirations for the future rest with the collaboration among all stakeholders in both the public and private sectors. We need the participation of our LEAs counterparts, governments, and expertise from the technology industry around the world as the backbone of forming public-private partnerships in our communities which will help us deliver better and more effective public and private services.  This form of partnership should not be limited to local partnership but it should go transnational in order to amplify the effectiveness of targeting the borderless nature of cybercrimes and threats,” said Mr Siu.  

     The symposium was the first of its kind to discuss cyber policing in Hong Kong. It strengthened the international network and co-operation among law enforcement agencies worldwide.
