The Korean National Police Agency (KNPA) presented Jarek Jakubcek, the head of law enforcement training at Binance, with a Certificate of Appreciation. The honour is given to Jakubcek in recognition of his numerous achievements and efforts in fostering collaboration and camaraderie between Binance and the KNPA, particularly in the field of cybercrime investigation. The Korean National Police Commissioner gave the award at the International Symposium on Cybercrime Response (ISCR) 2023.
The ISCR is a yearly conference that promotes knowledge exchange and brainstorming among industry executives, experts, and law enforcement agencies with an emphasis on the best methods for thwarting cybercrime.
Jakubcek, a renowned expert in cybercrime and a former cryptocurrency specialist at Europol’s Cybercrime Centre (EC3), is in charge of overseeing Binance’s interactions with law enforcement agencies. He also conducts workshops for international law enforcement communities, prosecutors, and police investigators, as well as practical cryptocurrency training.
Jakubcek acknowledged his thanks and honour upon getting the prize, praising KNPA’s effective investigation work in challenging cybercrime cases. He emphasised Binance’s steadfast stance that an exchange- and law enforcement-led cooperation strategy is essential for successful cybercrime defence.
Binance created the Global Law Enforcement Training Programme to help law enforcement agencies combat financial and cybercrimes involving virtual assets in order to fulfil this objective. Binance held more than 60 training sessions worldwide during the first half of 2023, both in-person and online.
