The purpose of the training workshop was to familiarize and train intelligence personnel from Central Asian countries with basic knowledge of cybercrime who are directly involved in conducting cybercrime investigations.
The training helped attendees to learn about cryptocurrencies, remittance systems, electronic money, payment systems, money laundering and electronic evidence.

- Trafficking in counterfeit goods;
- Trafficking in human beings and illicit trafficking;
- Trafficking in counterfeit medicines;
- Tax evasion;
- Illegal gambling;
- Money laundering and terrorist financing;
The workshop was attended by two SFIS representatives.
