ON FEBRUARY 9, Spain’s National Police celebrated Safer Internet Day (SID) by promoting 13 tips for safer surfing with the help of search engine Google.
The thirteen recommendations were compiled by members of the Technology Research Unit of the National Police, which investigates crimes including child pornography, cyber-attacks, piracy, phishing scams and internet fraud.
The sage advice for internet-users includes the following points:
In 2015, the National Police’s Technology Research Unit conducted more than 500 investigations into cybercrime and made 754 arrests.
Of those arrested, 390 people were accused of crimes relating to child pornography on the internet, while 280 were involved in digital fraud against e-commerce, banks and the telecommunications sector.
Some 46 people committed crimes against ‘logical security’ (online piracy and cyber-attacks) and a further 38 arrests related to crimes committed on social and open networks.
