The first seminar organized by Homo Digitalis, entitled “European Cyber Security Month: Real Challenges-Legal and Technical Solutions”, was successfully completed. More than 150 academics, professionals, students and citizens participated.

With the predominant message of the need for better information on the legal and technical aspects of cybersecurity, the seminar took place on Wednesday, October 31, at the Athens Bar Association.

In the framework of the European Cybersecurity Month, the workshop entitled “Real Challenges-Legal and Technical Solutions” brought together more than 150 academics, professionals and students from both legal and computer science backgrounds as well as several citizens with a keen interest in this particular issue. Particularly important was the presence of representatives from the Ministry of Digital Policy, the Data Protection Authority, the Authority for the Confidentiality of Communications, the Electronic Crime Prosecution Division and the judiciary.

In the first session of the seminar, the legal challenges and obligations of cyberspace were analyzed, while the second included a demonstration of social engineering and the presentation of the national cyber security team. The lecturers of the conference were prominent lawyers and computer professionals and demonstrated the necessary collaboration between the two fields to achieve fuller user protection.

We want to thank by heart the Athens Bar Association for its hospitality and support, as well as our outstanding speakers and collaborators, without which this event could not take place.

We are particularly grateful to the Attorney General of the Supreme Court, the Director of the Electronic Crime Investigation Department, the Data Protection Authority, the Ministry of Digital Policy and all the organizations that honored us through their presence.

We gratefully thank all of you who attended the seminar and showed us that the interest in digital rights is constantly increasing in our country.
