Criminal Law, Digital Transformation, and IT Security

The digital transformation - and the increasing use of digital technology, including the so-called 'artificial intelligence' - uncovers a number of fundamental questions of criminal law and criminal justice, including 'cybercrime', 'digital evidence', and 'IT security'. These need to be addressed in an interdisciplinary dialogue - in particular with IT security researchers -, fully taking the European, international and constitutional frameworks into account. Based on such an understanding, the digital transformation is an opportunity for criminal justice, and the understanding of criminal law.
