The meeting represents an important opportunity for participants spanning from various sectors (such as finance, e-commerce, government and law enforcement agencies, etc.) to share their experiences or recommendations while discussing the social and economic consequences of cyber crime. In particular the Symposium will focus on the social and economic ramifications that loss of credibility or "digital trust" would entail.
Among the various topics covered, there will be: the involvement of new types of criminal groups in cyber crimes, the impact of online abuse on European economies, who are the end users, corporations and government entities reacting to attacks on online trust, and the new common actions against cybercrime.
