UANL opens new Cybersecurity Center

This new center located at the School of Law and Criminology is the only one of its kind in the country.

Staff from the Attorney General’s Office, the Ministries of Security and Economy, and the Nuevo Leon 4.0 Initiative, among others, will be involved in the project.

“Cybersecurity and cybercrime are not the future, they are the present”, said university and state representatives during the opening ceremony of the UANL Center for Research on Cybercrime, Digital Law and Cybersecurity.

This was announced and signed in November 2021. Finally, this May 16, 2022, it became a reality thanks to the efforts of the authorities from the UANL School of Law and Criminology headed by Oscar Lugo Serrato.
