The content will provide knowledge of the National Police regarding how cybercriminals think, this will enable participants to learn to detect real cases of cybercrime and deal with situations of risk. Guidelines and recommendations for identifying situations and acting accordingly will also be provided. Many situations can be detected using common sense.

Patrimonial crimes represent a high percentage of criminal acts. Police investigations are lengthy because behind the cybercriminal there is a whole organized, specialized and structured gang. It is a pyramid with three steps, from bottom to top:

  • Basic level. Mules, goods receivers, etc.
  • Intermediate level. Recruiters for the organization or victims, financial intermediaries.
  • Attackers. Expert level and ringleaders.
