Given the modern world’s reliance on new technologies, computer related crime has become an unavoidable reality. SÉRVULO has responded by developing specialist capabilities in regards to cybercrime and digital evidence.

The department also advises on crimes that are specific to information technology (e.g. phishing, cyber attacks, service access denial and the spreading of malware) and, in a broader sense, crimes that are committed through information technology (e.g. defamation and threatening behaviour on social networks), as well as issues related to digital evidence regarding such crimes.
