The course provides tools for the intervention in different aspects related to artificial intelligence and algorithmic governance: either in the design of policies and legislation, in the creation of company policies or in the work environment. The program is aimed at people working in the fields of Law, Systems Engineering, Communications, members of public agencies and intergovernmental or supranational bodies, company consultants, teachers, researchers, among others.
Although a great deal of what will be analyzed in this course may seem to be science fiction, it is a reality and a problem that can be seen daily in all the areas of the industry: from self-driven cars, to algorithms that perform the job of thousands of humans automatically and more efficiently.

The course tackles the phenomenon of virtual crime, the applicable legislation, the difficulties arising during research, the need for legislative modifications, as well as the reactive and proactive measures to fight this kind of crimes. The human factor and the role of different sectors, both public and private throughout the whole program, will also be analyzed in order to spark the debate on the best practices for the use of information and communications technologies (TIC).
In addition to the domestic and international criminal legal framework related to cybercrime, the course will cover the technological concepts used nowadays which are related to the controls and audits that should be conducted from a cybersecurity perspective. On the other hand, it will analyze topics related to digital evidence and electronic proof in criminal proceedings together with the scope of the forensic analysis and the records that can be obtained from both public and private Internet service providers.
