About this Talk

The rate of cybercrimes has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. This has increased the need to analyze these crimes from different perspectives and approaches, including how offline organized crime operates online and how law enforcement officials also use cyberspace to gather intelligence. This panel will include presentations of specific crimes and strategies of criminal groups, including extremists groups worldwide, drug cartels, terrorist groups, trafficking in persons, and the analyses of risks with special emphasis in Latin America. Each panelist will provide a summary of their research and analyses on the topics, presenting concrete real examples. The speakers represent several institutions including international organizations, academia, and NGOs.
