cOcOn 2012 is an annual event hosted by Kerala Police. cOcOn is aimed at providing a platform to discuss, showcase, educate, understand and spread awareness on the latest trends in information, cyber and hi-tech crimes. This year held at Taj Vivanta Hotel in Trivandrum from 2nd – 4th August, it attracted delegates and presenters from across the nation and from overseas. Xminds was especially impressed to see the number of senior police in attendance: the Chief of Police of Kerala, Rajasthan and Jharkhand and a wealth of other really impressive individuals from the Indian Police Service.
The quality of the presentations was universally high. If we were to single out anybody it would be Federal MP for Trivandrum Dr. Shashi Tharoor. His opening address was noteworthy for its insight but also for the depth of knowledge the MP showed on the subject. Many speaking live and breathe the business of technology everyday. Dr Tharoor evidently has more than tech on his plate but showed a mastery of his brief and for this we commend him for special mention.
Xminds was invited by Kerala Police to present and showcase our Citizen-based Disaster Management Platform – an integrated solution for citizens and emergency services when faced with a distress situation.You can read what The Hindu said about our platform in the paper on 6th August 2012.
Much effort and innovation has going into this turnkey solution and it was gratifying to see the response to the presentation made by Jagadeesh Vijayakumar and Alexander von Kotze. Xminds now has to wade through a deluge of enquiries from state police forces across the country.
We think this is a nice problem to have!
