ENATIC and UIC Barcelona join together to teach a course on cybercrime
The president of the Association of National Experts in the Legal Profession in Information and Communication Technology (ENATIC), Rodolfo Tesone, and Xavier Gil, rector of the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC Barcelona) this morning signed a cooperation agreement. The agreement is framed within our new Master’s degree in Cybercrime which we will teach during the next academic year.
Based on this agreement, ENATIC will cooperate with the university on the Master’s degree in Cybercrime. ENATIC members will be eligible for a discount on the price of the tuition fees for this master’s degree programme. As well as disseminating the master’s degree among its members, the association will also set up a call for grants for academic excellence in cybercrime offered by the programme. The company will also open up its doors to future cooperation in terms of activities, conferences, courses or events which the university organises in the field of cybersecurity and cybercrime.
In recent years, the risk of cybervictimisation has multiplied in the individual, community and business fields. The increase in the numbers demands an improvement in training the professionals who interact with cybercrime, and, in that sense, the master’s degree was set up in response to this need. This is a pioneering programme in Spain due to its triple perspective: legal, criminological and procedural.
