C³ 2022 had a particular focus on combating ransomware and future threats. The development of operational and strategic concepts to fight cybercrime must not be constrained by national boundaries. Intense European and international co-operation is absolutely necessary. In this context, the business sector, the scientific community, the judicial authorities, politicians and law enforcement agencies are equally challenged because cyber criminals continuously adapt their modi operandi to the latest technical and societal developments.
Over two days, speakers from the political, business and science communities, as well as national and international institutions, talked about the latest trends and projects in the fields of ransomware and cybercrime.
Participants included representatives of police cybercrime units, public prosecutor's offices as well as managers and experts from business enterprises and scientific institutions.
Along with the publication of the Cybercrime Situation Report 2021 of the BKA, the first day of the event provided an insight into current developments and strategies aiming at the suppression of cybercrime. On the second conference day, various perspectives of international efforts to combat ransomware and cybercrime as a whole were presented.
The conference took place as a hybrid event on May 9 and May 10, 2022 on the premises of the Digital Society Institute at the ESMT Berlin.
The conference was simultaneously interpreted into German and English. Despite continued restrictions from the pandemic, the majority of the speakers and most of the attendees participated in-person, with a significant number of participants also joining virtually via Zoom.
