Design, implementation and management of corporate compliance programmes and preventive defence strategies faced with penal and technological risks
Since the criminal responsibility of legal persons was set out in 2010 until now, successive reforms of the Spanish Criminal Code have defined the tax budgets covering this responsibility and compliance programmes as the only way to be exempt from it. The doctrinal and jurisprudential trajectory of this material has established an unprecedented synergy between criminal and business law, thus generating an educational need in a field that is still new.
Faced with this scenario, and after offering a Specialisation Course in Compliance and Cybercrime for four years running, UIC Barcelona and Molins Abogados – Defensa Penal are now offering a broader postgraduate degree programme, with the main purpose of providing the necessary technical and legal training to compliance officers who are at the start of their professional career. This course is also open to people who work in legal advisory services and professionals who hold positions involving a certain degree of responsibility in companies and institutions in both the public and private sectors.
Our Postgraduate Degree in Compliance and Cybersecurity takes an eminently practical approach and is taught by prestigious members of our teaching staff. The main aim of this postgraduate degree is to teach students about designing and implementing a CPM (crime prevention model) while taking into consideration the challenges of the digital transformation of companies and emerging problems in the field of cybersecurity, all oriented towards avoiding criminal responsibility for legal persons.
This programme offers a profound view of the profile of compliance officers and provides technical and legal tools to tackle technological risks in companies during each of the three stages of the implementation of a CPM (crime prevention model).
- Crime prevention
Risk analysis, protocol design, training and awareness-raising for employees and management.
- Crime detection
Inspections, internal investigations, forensic IT, audits, whistleblowing hotline.
- Reaction to detection of crime and/or irregular behaviour
Disciplinary measures, review and improvement of CP, criminal defence strategies.
