On November 15, 2022, DigitalSign in partnership with the Polícia Judiciária (Criminal Police of Portugal) held a workshop on the theme: “Cybercrime and Secure Digital Transformation”.
The evolution of the digital transformation poses new and growing challenges from a security perspective.
The digital has an impact on all sectors of our daily lives and, for the common user, living with the multiple dimensions of security, due to its complexity and constant change, presents itself as quite complex.
From the perspective of cybercriminals, the possibility of committing crimes at a distance gives them a sense of impunity. They cross the networks of multiple countries and jurisdictions where local legislation either does not provide for the crimes committed or does not apply to the jurisdiction where the crime is committed. In many cases, the method applied by the criminal makes it impossible to obtain evidence to find them and, as well, to punish them.
We thus streamline a workshop that aims to present different perspectives on the subject of cybercrime and information security.
There were more than 170 people who accompanied us during this productive day and in which expectations were largely exceeded by both the organization and the participants.
