Binance and the New Taipei District Prosecutors Office worked together to organize training to prevent cybercrime in the virtual assets space. The workshop was held on August 24 as part of Binance’s ongoing efforts to continue to lead the fight against financial cybercrime on a worldwide scale.

Yu Li-Chen, the Chief Public Prosecutor of the New Taipei District Prosecutors Office, was among the more than 70 prosecutors and assistant prosecutors who attended the workshop both in person and virtually. A variety of subjects were covered by experts from Binance’s industry-leading compliance team, including recent criminal trends in the virtual asset sector, the fundamentals of blockchain and digital asset investigations, and case studies of Binance’s efforts to fight financial crimes in collaboration with law enforcement agencies and financial intelligence units worldwide.
As technology rapidly advances, new forms of crime emerge. It is crucial for law enforcement agents to understand the latest crime trends and be equipped with skills to protect citizens’ assets. We are delighted to partner with Binance to provide prosecutors with knowledge and insights in blockchain and virtual assets space and enhance our investigative capabilities.Yu Li-Chen, Chief Public Prosecutor of New Taipei District Prosecutors Office
Binance and Taiwan Previously Organized a Workshop
The August training is the second round of activities this summer that Binance and Taiwan law enforcement agencies have jointly arranged. Similar training sessions were conducted by Binance in Taipei in June for the Criminal Investigation Bureau of Taiwan.
User protection is one of Binance’s core values, and public-private collaborations are essential to doing this work properly. That is why we are extremely honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with the New Taipei District Prosecutors Office and share our global experience of assisting in investigations and prosecutions of illicit actors. We hope that this strategic collaboration will help bolster the security of the virtual-asset ecosystem in Taiwan and beyond, as well as drive positive growth for the industry.Damien Ho, Binance’s Global Partnerships Team
Experts from Binance assist Taiwan’s law enforcement officers to more effectively traverse the digital asset ecosystem and improve their ability to combat crime related to virtual assets through these proactive knowledge-sharing workshops. As a result, users both in Taiwan and beyond will benefit from a safer and more secure environment.
I am impressed by the technical skills and dedication that Taiwan’s investigators and prosecutors possess. Within the span of just a few months, we’ve delivered training workshops for two law enforcement agencies in Taiwan, and this is a testament to their commitment to keeping the virtual assets space safer and more secure for all users. We are heartened to witness this and are looking forward to doing our part as an industry leader through knowledge-sharing and capacity-building initiatives in Taiwan and beyond. Strengthened cooperation with law enforcement agencies and officers is a top priority here at Binance,Jarek Jakubcek, Head of Global Law Enforcement Training at Binance
