Law enforcement will benefit from the early detection of criminal behavior. This will be crucial in developing appropriate and viable strategies to address the behaviour. It will be critical that law enforcement have access to the information gathered by private industry, public sector and academia to ensure that their efforts are intelligence-led and focus on the areas of greatest impact and/or concern.
The preservation and integrity of digital evidence is critical to a successful prosecution. The applicable laws and regulations in Canada will govern the preservation and handling of any digital evidence and or data. Law enforcement will work closely with the other partners in order to:
- Ascertain criminal behavior;
- Identify strategies for addressing the criminal activity; and
- Ensure the preservation of digital evidence in support of a criminal investigation.
