Last call to register for the CEP Workshop on gender-based violence in probation

that will take place on 13 and 14 December at the Center for Legal Studies in Barcelona, Catalonia – Spain.
In this workshop CEP will open up the topic of gender-based violence in probation to address gender inequality, especially towards women and girls, focusing on sexual abuse and domestic violence. The workshop will cover the topic from the perspective of probation and other criminal justice professionals including offenders and victims. With this workshop, we will discuss the effective and efficient ways of working with offenders, which programmes and technologies are used to prevent gender-based violence, support treatment process, among others. A World Café session will bring together smaller groups of participants to discuss and share knowledge and experience from their jurisdictions and thus support mutual learning as one of the core skills necessary for further professional development of themselves and their organisations.

European Crime Prevention Award 2022


This year, the theme of the European Crime Prevention Award (ECPA) and Best Practice Conference (BPC) is working with a particularly vulnerable crime victim. The aim is to exchange experiences and good practices; most importantly in the areas of early identification of victims, prevention of secondary victimisation/re-victimisation and how to increase motivation to report crimes and thus to reduce the latency of crime. The winners of the #ECPA2022 will be announced on 9 December in Prague. 

AIC: New study examines link between data breaches and cybercrime


The Australian Institute of Criminology’s Serious and Organised Crime Research Laboratory has released a new Statistical Bulletin on the relationship between data breaches and other forms of cybercrime victimisation.

  • Almost one in 10 respondents to a survey of 15,000 Australian computer users conducted in June 2021 said they were notified their information was exposed in a data breach in the 12 months prior to the survey.
  • Compared with respondents who had not been notified of a data breach, respondents notified of a data breach were 34 percent more likely to have been a victim of identity crime, 17 percent more likely to have been a victim of an online scam or fraud and 80 percent more likely to have also received a ransom message on their device.
  • The most common signs of being a victim of identity theft were being told by a bank their identity had been stolen or account was misused, finding unauthorised activity on their credit card, getting calls about unpaid bills, finding suspicious transactions on their bank statement, being unable to apply for credit, and missing or strange bills. These were all more likely to happen to respondents who had been notified their information was exposed in a data breach.

The findings demonstrate that measures to protect individuals whose information has been exposed in a data breach from other potentially related cybercrimes are essential and should be prioritised when data breaches occur.
