We use technologies as the Internet ubiquitous in our daily lives, some with good intentions, others with intentions to inflict harm. With a cyber-criminological approach, we will look at multiplefactors to explain anti-social behaviour online. This could include a typology of cybercriminals and their intentions, modus operandi and victimology. With this knowledge, we can start to understand certain crimes and develop best practices to combat them and develop preventive measurements. We want to encourage critical towards technology when looking at these phenomena from a socio-technological perspective and challenge the question: Is the human really the weakest link in cyber security? #knowledgesharing #userawarness #usinginsecuretech #usingbiasedalgorithm #darknet Digital Law: Deconstructing those legal issues that digital entrepreneurs come across when developing their business, such as handling personal Dara (GDPR), commercialising interwctual property, licensing issues, marketing, owning a business, and raising capital...
