There is more!
Our intention is to train the first cyber knights in Bulgaria, explains Prof. Peter Hristov. In practice, this means that, in a relatively short time, there will be highly qualified experts to solve cases related to cybercrime such as cyber theft, hacking, extortion, etc.
New intelligent security systems are today the basis of security. For example, human gait, similarly to the dactyloscopic fingerprint, provides a unique digital formula. It does not matter how much the appearance of a person changes, this formula remains unique and the person can be identified. This technology can be used to detect crime. The situation is similar in case of natural disasters or economic threat, added the rector of VFU.
