CyberROAD Project Final Event, May 25th: "Future Challenges in Cyber Crime and Cyber Terrorism Research: the CyberROAD perspective".

CyberROAD organizes its final event "Future Challenges in Cyber Crime and Cyber Terrorism Research: the CyberROAD perspective" at the Auditorium of the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture, University of Cagliari - Piazza d'Armi, Cagliari, Italy on May 25th, 2016.

CyberROAD (Development of the Cybercrime and Cyber-terrorism Research Roadmap) is a project funded by the European Commission, under the Seventh Framework Programme. Cyber criminal activities are reported to be continuously growing and are negatively impacting the development of the European society and economy, and are pervasively affecting all the aspects of our daily lifes. Even though the level of awareness of cyber threats has increased, and Law Enforcement acts globally to fight against them, illegal profits have reached unsustainable figures. In addition to the economic reasons, however, cyber crime often hides other political and social motivations.
In order to help coordinate the European efforts in the fight against cyber crime and cyber terrorism, the CyberROAD project has identified 19 research topics on which Europe should concentrate resources to increase its security and resilience, organizing them in strategic roadmap for Cyber Security Research.
The CyberROAD project has been implemented by a consortium of 20 international partners, involved in the fight against Cyber Crime and Cyber Terrorism. Members include representatives from Academia and Research, Industry, Government and NGOs across Europe.

Workshop Abstract
ILLBuster is the acronym of a research project funded by the European Commission, DG-HOME, with the goal of developing an integrated information system for the semi-automatic discovery of illegal activities over the Internet.
The project has been running for 2 years, and now it is proud to report the achieved results to the public with a half-day networking event open to selected companies, stakeholders, research centres. The agenda also casts a glance beyond the ILLBuster experience by a selected number of invited talks of stakeholders and scientists involved in the arms race to develop proactive security tools for the fight against cybercrime.
