With cybercrime being the largest growing crime, forecast to reach a global cost of US$ 2 trillion by 2019, it is important therefore that businesses and residents are more aware of this and what steps can be taken to minimize the risk.

Associação Safe Communities Portugal is therefore organizing a Cybercrime seminar for local businesses and residents, which will take place at the Auditório do Centro Cultural de Cascais, Av.ª Rei Humberto II de Itália, 2750-641 Cascais on Tuesday 26th January 2016 from 1800 to 2000 hrs.

We are privileged to present the following keynote speakers who are experts in their fields:

Senhor Inspetor Chefe Rogério Bravo of the Judicial Police;

Lieutenant-Colonel Paulo Jorge Soares Dos Santos, Chief of the Cybersecurity Taskforce in the Operational Command OG GNR;

Commissioner Carlos Correia Public Security Police (PSP) and

Mr. Jim Litchko (Senior Computer Security Analyst and Board Member of Safe Communities Portugal).

The event will be opened by, Senhora. Dra. Maria do Céu Garcia, Deputy Mayor of Cascais, who will deliver a welcoming address. This will be followed by a presentation by the President of Safe Communities Portugal, Mr David Thomas, concerning the work of the association regarding Cybercrime.

Topics to be covered include:  Cybersecurity Threat, Real-World Scenarios, Awareness Efforts, and Practical and Cost-Effective Solutions.

It is believed that this is the first seminar of its type to be held in English in the Cascais/Lisbon area. There will be plenty of time to ask the panellist questions. A program will be sent to those attending.

The event is in English and entry is free. More details of the event and program will be published in due course. Entry is free.  This is likely to be heavily subscribed and seating is limited. Attendance is on a first come first served basis.
