C³ 2021 had a particular focus on European strategies for combatting cybercrime. The development of operational and strategic concepts to fight cybercrime must not be constrained by national boundaries. Intense European and international co-operation is absolutely necessary. In this context, the business sector, the scientific community, the judicial authorities, politicians and law enforcement agencies are equally challenged because cyber criminals continuously adapt their modi operandi to the latest technical and societal developments.
Over two days, speakers from the political, business and science communities, as well as national and international institutions, talked about the latest trends and projects in the field of cybercrime.
Participants included representatives of police cybercrime units, public prosecutor's offices as well as managers and experts from business enterprises and scientific institutions.
Along with the publication of the Cybercrime Situation Report 2020 of the BKA, the first day of the event did provide an insight into current developments and strategies aiming at the suppression of cybercrime. On the second conference day, various perspectives of national and international security agencies and the economic sector on the phenomenon of cybercrime have been presented.
The conference took place as a virtual event on May 10 and May 11, 2021 on the premises of the Digital Society Institute at the ESMT Berlin.
The conference was simultaneously interpreted into German and English. Due to the restrictions surrounding the pandemic, the majority of the speakers and all of the attendees participated virtually via Zoom.
