Trilateral Research took the stage at the International Summit on Youth and Cybercrime held in Valencia (Spain) on 1 March 2023, with a plenary presentation and multiple panel discussions on the trends of cyber juvenile delinquency, including their human and technical drivers.
The event, hosted by Valencia Local Police, was live-streamed, simultaneously translated into Spanish, and was attended by policy makers, law enforcement agencies, industry representatives, academics, education experts, as well as other experts in the field of cybercrime and cybersecurity. The press was also present and the Summit was featured in the local news which also included interviews with CC-DRIVER and RAYUELA project partners, including Trilateral Research.
The event took place within the framework of the CC-DRIVER and RAYUELA projects, which are funded by the European Union to understand the drivers of cyber-criminality and to develop methods to prevent, investigate and mitigate cybercriminal behaviour.
Trilateral coordinates the CC-DRIVER project, which aims to better understand the human and technical drivers of cybercriminality with a special focus on the factors that lead young people to cybercrime.
CC-DRIVER’s research on cybercrime-as-a-service, juvenile cyber delinquency, and criminality is beingtranslated into innovative investigation, prevention and policy toolkits that law enforcement agencies, policymakers and others can use to counteract cybercriminality.
“Cybercrime is ubiquitous, and despite numerous efforts, it is not yet properly addressed, as the nature of these threats requires more effort and a more collaborative approach. Thanks to this research, the drivers of cyber-criminality are now better understood, and tools are available to help the most vulnerable individuals in society”, said Chief Research Officer of Trilateral Research and CC-DRIVER coordinator, David Wright.
