Silvia Barrera Ibáñez participates in Module 2-2 “Awareness in cybersecurity: real cases” of C1b3rWall Academy 2021 with a lecture on ” Awareness” during the first part of her lecture, she will introduce us, through a series of videos organized into modules, about real cybercrime situations and in the second part she will focus on “Module 1: Patrimonial crimes”.

Silvia is a police inspector and head of the Technological Crimes Group of the Superior Headquarters of La Rioja. She has been working for more than 15 years in cybercrime investigation and in the management of cyber-investigation and digital evidence groups in the Central Unit of Cybercrime and later in the Headquarters of La Rioja. In addition, she has participated in this field in international organizations such as EUROPOL, INTERPOL or CEPOL.

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.

You can read the complete articles on News-365-1 and News-365-2.

This conference will talk about how to detect situations of risk about the necessary guidelines or recommendations to follow and about the cases of patrimonial crimes. To learn more about these topics, register for free in C1b3rWall Academy 2021.

You also have the opportunity to deepen your knowledge about this and other internet security topics with the Master in Cybersecurity at the University of Salamanca. Registration is now open for the call that will start in February 2022.
